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.
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

5 things you shouldn’t store in your attic

It's a handy storage space, but not for everything! Much like the garage, your attic is a perfect storage black hole — things often get put up there, never-to-return. But if you've spent years packing bits and bobs in the space above your house without much thought, you might want to reconsider. Most attic spaces are subject to extremes of temperature and fluctuating humidity, which make them an unsuitable place to store certain things. It's time to pull down the ladder and have a dig around at what's up there. Here's our list of things you shouldn't store in your attic. 1. Old tech VCRs, TVs, smartphones, laptops and games consoles - any delicate electronics - shouldn’t be kept where there are big fluctuations in temperature and high humidity levels such as an attic. Moisture can easily collect inside and damage them. If you no longer need them, consider selling on eBay instead of storing. 2. Photographs or picture albums Your recent memories may al
