backfile conversion
Last modified: Friday, October 22, 2004 

Backfile conversion is the act of replacing large volumes of documents with digital images. Generally backfile conversion consists of digitizing volumes of documents by using high speed scanning methods to convert these legacy documents into digital images which will be stored as document libraries.

Today many agencies have millions of records stored on media such as card-stock, maps, microfiche, or microfilm, to name a few. When a particular file is needed, locating these records could take hours or days; especially if these physical documents are stored off-site in a warehouse facility. Backfile conversion provides rapid access to these legacy documents in electronic formats.
