Discussion: Just when we’re getting serious about backfile conversion, COVID hits. We can’t even get to the physical files now, and some of them are actually needed for work ongoing work. Whenever we get back to the office, we will need additional space to maintain social distance. Those file cabinets and shelves will have to go. 


At the National Archives, new and updated quality standards will be issued this year to help agencies convert properly. New technologies are emerging with promises as big as their price tags.


It is a time of rapid digital transformation and a very interesting time to be in the scanning business.
