  3. 3. The Digitization Experience
  4. 4. Phase 1: Outsourced  25 million pages target was achieved in less than 1 year in 2004  By 2007, re-work is still ongoing to correct unreadable pages. It was stopped because it will take longer to perform quality control compared to re-scanning by our staff.  Some originals sustained damages  Output file size is large
  5. 5. Phase 2: In-house 1 million pages target was achieved in 1 year in 2007 (Equivalent to 3-year productivity of another outsourced project of similar staffing) Non-destructive techniques were used to prevent damages Output file size is smaller Quality is better than phase 1
  6. 6. Our Gains from In-house Digitization Digitized document as output (in outsourcing this is the only output) Ability to digitized materials with limited budget including materials with few pages. Outsourcing requires a minimum volume of materials. Better quality of digitized
  7. 7. Our Gains from In-house Digitization  Minimal damage/loss, if none at all, to delicate materials  Procured equipment, computer hardware and software can be used to digitize more materials (new materials are added each year)  Procured equipment, computer hardware and software is useful in post-digitization services such as information repackaging and delivery
