5. A workflow for digitisation

Chapter 5 provides a workable workflow process to take a project from its initial preparation to its digitisation and the creation of backup copies. This section is meant to ensure the data is not only organised in a way that makes sense but also that, should anything happen to the main copy of the digitised collection, it can be restored. It is worth noting the process presented here is meant for a collection held in one repository and the materials are digitised at a central location. The workflow would have to be restructured as necessary to fit specifics of the project. Examples of a document tracking systems and logistics to keep in mind are also presented.
