After meeting on the spot I will analyse the existing record groups and we will develop a record plan with filing system and categories. We will discuss the long time location of the record groups. If there is not sufficient room, digitization could be an economically better solution. We will clarify if additional databases must be purchased or if existing databases need to be adapted.
During the process of description intrinsical and extrinsical data will be captured according to international standards. The description can be carried out either in your location or in my office. If required, I will introduce your staff to the methods of description.
To purchase an archive software tailored to your business or organizational needs I compile requirement specifications and ask for offers from several firms. According to your demands we will select the most suitable solution and I will test the application and demonstrate the data input.
For you and your employees I provide training courses to familiarize you with using archive databases, making data-input and carrying out research.
If you want to keep original documents, I will give you advice on the required equipment. For objects that need restoration I will arrange contacts to restoration specialists. If you like to digitize your documents I will look for suitable scan services which will process your records as soon as possible and in the vicinity.
