Digitalization of Documents
An archive is an accumulation of historical records or the physical place they are located. Archives contain primary source documents that have accumulated over the course of an individual or organization’s lifetime, and are kept to show the function of that person or organization.
In general, archives consist of records that have been selected for permanent or long-term preservation on grounds of their enduring cultural, historical, or evidentiary value.
In our aim to free up office space, files were moved and placed at our Providence office for archives purposes. However with evolution, we have now collaborated with the Pro Archives System to archives all these documents.
Mrs. Ernesta, the Principal Licensing Officer for Registry has for the past few months been going there for sorting and classifying the files in appropriate boxes for transfer to the office where the digitalisation will take place.
MEETING WITH SRC
The SLA Board met with representatives from SRC on Thursday 23rd May to discuss several issues but most importantly the Revenue Collection.
