 Manuscript digitisation is the process in which rare and old manuscripts are converted to digital file formats

A manuscript (abbreviated MS for singular and MSS for plural) was, traditionally, any document written by hand – or, once practical typewriters became available, typewritten — as opposed to mechanically printed or reproduced in some indirect or automated way.

Our studio uses scanning equipment that is built specifically for bound and loose valuable documents. These are the only equipment that should be used for digital preservation of manuscripts. These machines are specifically designed to scan rare and fragile material, such as valuable manuscripts.
