I See Digital Archive System In Your Future.
For material that is damaged or deteriorating, digitization offers an opportunity to provide replacement copies of a quality as well as those generated through preservation. For rare or fragile material, such copies can be used both to reduce handling and increase access.
Once the scanning is completed, the files can be easily retrieved at the click of a button. There is NO need to search and find out an old document from the heap of documents. It is quick, easy and reliable.
Digital imaging on disk media allows rapid and random access in a way that no other medium (either tape or film) allows. It also allows the possibility of automatically linking up a search of a bibliographic database with a store of images.
Once the data is digitized, it can be easily duplicated at the click of a button. The duplicated copies will be of the same quality as the original one and sometimes even better!
