Digitisation and Archive Services Brochure.

Digitisation and Archive Services Brochure

Our brochure provides an overview for each of our core services, assembling them in general chronological order to accurately reflect a typical project workflow. Clients are able to join this workflow at whichever stage suits them - it is modular in nature. For example, some clients require an end-to-end approach: from conservation, to digitisation, all the way through to online access and digital preservation; others might already have digitised content and therefore only require our online access or digital preservation services. We are sufficiently flexible to fit in with your specific needs. The introductory case studies illustrate this approach and we are of course happy to share full studies upon request.

The brochure also aims to communicate the benefits of adopting a digitisation strategy, and why we at Max feel well-placed to support this, as we have for so many others.

I have worked with Max Communications and the team for some years. In recent work with their Archivematica iteration in the College Archives and Corporate Records Unit, and other digital work required by varying cohorts in Imperial, Max Communications have been responsive, innovative and demonstrated great problem-solving abilities. The Max Communications team, from the top down, is approachable, friendly and keen to help.

An example is in their engagement for some major confidential scanning projects. The projects were discussed, scoped and agreed to a high standard of hand scanning. Benchmarking was agreed to our satisfaction when the project started, with a fast progress time for the work. They provided rapid access to files, including digitising out of sequence, e.g. one such turn around for hand scanning, editing and proofing a large file was within 3 hours. The digital delivery was by secure online transfer, and the hard disks and hard copy delivered securely by courier.

On a lighter note, digitisation of 1960s academic cine film was carried out promptly and to a high standard, such that it can be reshown at a major conference
