Cantonal Archives of Vaud - Switzerland

The challenge


Digitizing the equivalent of 150 meters of shelving over 4 years: A feat made possible by the implementation of two large SupraScan Quartz scanners in A1 (841 mm x 594 mm) and A0 (1 m²) format. Each one is adapted to specific documents and is equipped with a book holder, thus facilitating the digitization of registers without damaging the binding. Our solution is supplemented by a metadata image annotation process which is fully automated by our Limb Processing and Limb Maestro software.
