How do I create a digital archive?

Creating a digital archive involves several steps. First, assess the documents you need to archive and decide on the categories and structure for your archive. Digitise physical documents using high-quality scanners, ensuring the settings capture clear and legible images. Apply Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to make scanned documents searchable. Organise the digital files into a predetermined folder structure with clear and consistent naming conventions. Use metadata to tag documents with relevant information, which aids in searching and categorisation. Finally, ensure that the archive is backed up and that access controls are in place to protect sensitive information.
