Presidential artifacts to be digitized

Organizations in many different industries turn to electronic information management systems to save documents that could be lost or destroyed. Rather than storing historical, client and company documents physically, they are turning to technology.

According to Michigan Live, the Gerald R. Ford Foundation recently began a campaign to expand the Student Learning Center at Ford Museum in Grand Rapids and digitize documents associated with the president. The project of conversion will be undertaken at the Ford Library in Ann Arbor, the source detailed.

The news provider explained that approximately 25 million files will be documented and stored in an online database and that the initiative was started to make the records available to individuals around the world. The Foundation will try to allocate $1 per file for conversion.

While the costs of digitization can be immediately steep, it can save a corporation in the long run. Leaders can expand the office space, no longer have to invest in hardware like file cabinets and wouldn't have to spend as much for recovery if a disaster should strike the office.
