Paul Mullon, Marketing Director of MetroFile, has written an interesting article about archival storage of records. He writes:
For active documents, digital solutions are exactly what the doctor ordered. For archives, however, technology fails to meet organisations' long-term document storage needs.
To effectively meet their archival requirements, companies need to look past technological niceties to proven, reliable solutions, such as microfilm.
This is an interesting story that is a bit contrary to current thinking in genealogy circles. You can read Mullon’s story on IT Web.
