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

ABOUT FERROTYPE PROCESS Ferrotypes first appeared in America in the 1850s, but didn’t become popular in Britain until the 1870s. They were still being made by while-you-wait street photographers as late as the 1950s.
