Hello Pippa Reissner,


We are in the same situation here at the Tofino Clayoquot Heritage Museum regarding making a digitization plan.

The questions that you put out for recommendations are the same as are on my mind.

Would you please share with me what you find out?

Good Afternoon, 


Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin is looking to digitize their collection of archives. I wanted to reach out and inquire with other organizations who may have gone through this process in the past and who can share some tips.


Did you digitize your entire collection of archives? What was the timeline?

Did you digitize in-house, or did you send your archives to a 3rd party to digitize the collection for you?

If you digitized in-house, what equipment did you use?

Once digitized, what software or program did you choose to host your archives for public access?


Any insight is appreciated!
