Physical Archives

Even though our society has become more and more digital, there are still many archives with paper documents, photographs, analog films, tapes and items.

Such archives can have a significant historical, commercial and legal value if they are properly organized and managed.

We work with different scenarios and can help create an overview of the possibilities, perspectives, risks and costs that are related to the task of securing the long-term usability of a physical archive.    

We can also help determine whether the continued management of a given physical archive can be justified, or if an archive should be reorganized, digitized or outsourced.    

Digital Archives

We can offer advice with the start up and operation of digital archives, and can help formulate strategies and procedures for the collection and systemization of digital material.

Furthermore, we can assist with requirements specifications as well as auditing of archival systems and storage solutions. 

We have an overall focus on maintaining data integrity, and can also help develop exit strategies that will ensure the proper and secure extraction and migration of digital material.
