Services for your family, small business, or non - profit:

Services include:

  • Arrangement of letters, documents, photos, maps, books, and other materials
  • Description of letters, documents, photos, maps, books, and other materials
  • Creation of a finding aid to be able to locate needed and necessary items quickly
  • Digitization of letters, documents, photos, maps, and other materials that can be digitized without losing their "contentual and contextual" integrity
  • Preservation of electronic documents, also called "born digital" documents, to more permanent formats
  • Sampling and disposition of any letters, documents, photos, maps, books, and other materials - especially if there is duplication. For example, if you would like to keep a record of paid monthly bills for the past 15 years, one bill from each year could be preserved instead of every bill from every month over those 15 years. Disposition will get rid of materials that are not deemed to have intrinsic value by the family, small business, or non - profit
  • The establishment of retention schedules and a record management system for small businesses and non - profit records

 

Steps include: 

  • A face to face consultation to address what the family, small business or non - profit is looking for regarding archival needs
  • A first look at the collection needing to be archived. This will give me an idea of how many hours are going to be needed to complete the project successfully
  • Presentation of a list of other services that can be offered to expand the scope and content of the materials - things such as linking the collection with various archival repositories and oral histories
  • A detailed invoice describing what services are being done, costs and materials that will be used
  • A final agreement so the work can begin!
