Antiquated documents scanning at United Basel Mission Church

Background

United Basel Mission Church (UBMC) in India is an Association which was incorporated well over a century ago in 1901. It is a missionary society and works to create employment opportunities for the people of the area where each mission is located. The church had some files right from its inception over a 100 years ago and these documents and files were to be scanned.

Client’s requirement

UBMC had some files which were as old as 100 years which included their minutes of meetings, property documents and the church maps. The papers were faded and books withered, due to continued exposure to the natural elements like sunlight, heat, humidity over the years. UBMC wanted us to scan the pages without removing them from the books and of course without any damage.

The solution

Crown set up a scan station and scanned the pages using a flatbed scanner. We also provided indexing of the pages as per the books. We were able to finish the job in a day which included scanning of 9,000 pages including several maps.

Feedback from customer

Having successfully scanned the documents and helped in its preservation and longevity, the trust had words of appreciation for us. “We are extremely happy with the services provided for scanning antiquated files and building maps” wrote Mr. Leslie, UBMC’s representative for the project.
