Delving through the records
15th June, 2017

Digitising the documents hasn’t been easy. Some are fragile, some are humongous and almost all come with decades, if not centuries, of dust! We’ve all had to learn how to best handle and digitise these documents on the job, with some ideas and methods being a little more successful than others.

We’ve also learnt how to develop a dislike for the poly pockets, staples and paperclips which slow us down; although pulling staples out of documents is a good stress reliever. Surprisingly sewing is another skill we’ve learnt as the vast majority of our documents are stitched together.
