Document Scanning of the Kidlington Historical Societies Archives

Oxford Duplication Centre Working with Local History | Kidlington Historical Society Project | England


Kidlington & District Historical Society. The Society was founded in 1971 with the object of promoting an interest in the history, architecture and archaeology.  The society carries out research into the local history of Kidlington and the adjoining area.


https://www.kidlingtonhistory.org.uk
Our experienced team at Oxford Duplication are working on a year project to document scan, prepare OCR (optical character recognition) and embed the vast and complex Kidlington Historical Society's document archives into a live working Excel Spreadsheet that can be embedded into their website. The archive comprises of many thousands of documents, books, pamphlets and newspapers that need to be individually scanned and indexed accordingly.


Understandably this project requires a high level of experience and accuracy to ensure that documents relating to Kidlington and surrounding areas are indexed accurately, ready for online presence.



We can support our corporate, consumer and heritage clients with a diverse digitisation service within the fields of audio, video, film, image and text.  Orders can be from just 1 VHS wedding tape to 10,000's of archives.  

Kind regards

Onion Skin Archive Book Scanning - What is this and how do we process the pages?

CURRENT BOOK SCANNNING PROJECT.  We are currently working on a very large archive of old books that require HQ scanning to Archival TIFF images.  Once processed, these images will be prepared to PDF with OCR (optical character recognition) for a complete searchable output.   The difficulty in this order, is the books are prepared using a medium called Onion Skin Paper. Whilst we are very confident in preparing this type of medium, it is very important to be aware that there are risks with scanning, given the sometimes-fragile nature of the paper.   Tears and rips can occur, so a very gentle white glove approach is required. Equally, with the nature of onion skin, the paper is very translucent which requires a sheet of white paper to be placed under each page before scanning. This then grants a very good HQ image that we can work with.   WHAT IS ONION SKIN PAPER? Onion skin paper is a type of very light weight, almost translucent paper that somewhat resembles the outer skins
