Document Scanning Essentials

Although imaging systems can store and quickly retrieve a large volume of documents, they can rarely be justified on that basis alone. To make optimal use of this technology, state agencies and local governments must understand standards and best practices for scanning records and maintaining them in these systems.

This workshop will cover:

  • Current imaging and scanning practices
  • What you need to know to prepare for a scanning project
  • How to incorporate Records Management principles into scanning your records
  • Strategies and best practices for conducting your own scanning project¬†
Workshop Type: Classroom Training
Intended Audience: Local Governments, State Agencies
