Digital Records

Digital archives can be either born-digital, created electronically on a computer or digital camera, such as text, spreadsheets, databases or digital photographs. They can also be digital copies of items, such as scans of older photographs or posters; these are known as digital surrogates. It is harder to preserve digital material than paper and parchment. An example of the impact these can have on archive organisations such as the Portsmouth History Centre can be seen HERE

Access some excellent information on digitising archives previously available from the Hampshire Record Office, which, whilst it may be out of date, nevertheless may be of use. It is available HERE
