What is a Digital Archive? A digital archive is similar in purpose to a physical archive, but the historical documents and objects that provide evidence of the past have been digitised and made available online.  The best protection for your private collections is to have your archives digitised into easy to access digital formats.

Creating a Digital Archive of Your Belongings.  Many clients have collections which are personally significant materials. These may include diaries and letters handed down through generations or photographs of significant life events or even a set of old tickets stubs. These paper-based collections deteriorate over time, but making small changes in storage and handling can have a huge impact on the lifespan of the materials.

What formats are best for archiving files?    Technology has become more secure with National Archive Standards ensuring archivists digitise  correctly to ensure online media is universally accessible. For images, we digitise using TIFF format. This is the highest quality output.   For documents, we offer PDF format which can be opened regardless of software or operating system. For video files, we suggest archival AVI or Pro-res, or for more accessible files MPEG4.  And for sound files, WAV or FLAC are the best-quality formats, and usable on all of the current platforms on the Mac and in Windows.
