Reports & Letters

Reports & Letters (Loose Items)

TownsWeb Archiving’s digitisation technicians are experts in heritage scanning and have a wealth of experience in the digitisation of reports, letters, pamphlets and other fragile loose paper collections.

Our team will create folder structures that mimic the original collection and name files to improve the accessibility of the collection.

Digitisation protects your material from loss or damage and makes them quickly accessible. We can create output formats in TIFF, JPEG (JPEG2000), PDF (PDFA), or any other industry-standard format you may require. We can also create further surrogate files, such as OCR’d multi-page PDFs, MS Word and eBooks.

Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

We use a combination of high-resolution planetary scanners, self-compensating book cradles and flat surface boards to support delicate items throughout the digitisation process. We also have a range of high-resolution cameras offering non-contact capture of precious, old and fragile material.

All files are captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians using overhead, daylight balanced, non-heat producing lighting before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.
