Wiki Version:
What sound does a digital collection make if it's preserved without functionality? The voices of history don't resonate when users access a poor interface with inaccurate search results. Seeking low-budget solutions to make collections available quickly does more harm than good due to poorly-developed software and inaccurate OCR. Anderson Archival discusses what an archivist should consider when creating or updating a digital collection, when not to choose economy over quality, and the various ways in which a digital collection can fail to be a useful research tool as a result of substandard work. Examples of both functional and poorly functioning collections will be presented to showcase these ideas, including a demonstration of our archival software solutions built upon meticulous OCR for faster and more accurate search.
