A society who is focussed on protecting and preserving the local history has approached me for help with digitising their archive. Can you recommend any resources I should look at on best practices from scanning the archive through to classifying it and defining the metadata so that it can be imported in batches? This is for a single project.
Also, I have read advice on collating the information in a spreadsheet before importing. How does this work if every entry has an associated PDF or image? Does Omeka have any plugins for scanning software to make the process more streamlined?
