The reason for digitising archival documents is well documented – all that now remains is to ensure that the digital image lives up to expectations. In his session at the upcoming QPLA 2015 Conference ‘Don’t reinvent the wheel : A roadmap to digitisation’, Jim Cohen will explore reasons why certain digitisation projects do not meet expectations and how to achieve success. Learning from past experiences, discover why it is not JUST about the machine and that greatest contributor to a successful project is the combination of people and processes.
Jim Cohen has headed up Strategic Engagements for Avantix (formally Scan Conversion Services) for the past three years. With a passion for the importance of historical documentation, he has become the champion within the business, and brings to life archival documentation which would otherwise be left dormant – invisible to the broader public.
