Web Accessible Digital Archives
Source: CAD/CAM Services
Soldiers Magazine had an extensive paper archive of magazine articles and photographs, which needed to be accessed regularly for reference. The Editor and Chief of Soldiers Magazine needed to find a way to preserve the archives as digital files and to make the digital archives readily accessible to all who might need them, both inside Soldiers Magazine at Ft. Belvoir, as well as outside, at other military installations, such as the Pentagon. Digital files needed to be accessible from Mac computers, used at Soldiers Magazine, and Windows or Unix operating systems, used at other facilities. IDEAL provided backfile conversion services to preserve the paper archives as indexed digital files, and began implementation of a browser-based IntraNETIX document management system at Soldiers Magazine.
