Down in the Archives - the big digitize!

From Standing Room Only, 2:41 pm on 21 June 2020

In the second part of Lynn's recent visit to Archives New Zealand she visits the vaults, where it houses the bulk of the millions of items entrusted to its care. Last time on Standing Room Only we wove our way around the storage areas and saw where damaged documents are repaired. Today we find out about the intricacies of digitizing fragile and sometimes very large documents. Chief Archivist Richard Foy is Lynn's guide.
