Now more than ever city, county, and state agencies have prioritized the digitization and preservation of their documents, and the modernization of records management methodologies. Municipalities, county government offices, and especially in state libraries and historical societies are taking advantage of funds that have been made available for this sole purpose.
We are pleased to be working with recorders, treasurers, assessors, police departments, departments of transportation, planning, and any paper-intensive government agency that requires their records are not only preserved but completely accessible.
Advantage Archives has been in the business of preserving historical documents for many years. We are a trusted partner to agencies and institutions across the country that have teamed with Advantage due to the experience and knowledge we have when it comes to archiving these old brittle documents, and the resources to make the content accessible to anyone at any time. We have preserved and provided online access to the historical newspapers in your communities, and have been doing so for years.
We partner with local government agencies, focusing on providing access to records that often get overlooked. Everything from land records to vital statistics, we are experienced with working on it all.
Advantage has been a valuable partner for the scanning needs of the Linn County Treasurer’s office for many years. The ease of searching their indexing allows my employees to have immediate access to hundreds of thousands of documents at their fingertips! They are a great company to work with! ~Sharon Gonzalez – Linn County Treasurer
We will work with you to help locate and maximize any funding sources available to you, and the experienced consultants at Advantage Archives will work with your agency or department to customize a plan that will work in conjunction with current budget restraints, and as a complement to your existing operations. Our current partnerships with several city, county, and state-level agencies have proven to offer MORE services at even LESS cost, allowing available funds to stretch even further.
We offer solutions that help local governments provide access to:
- Deed Books
- Mortgage Records
- Survey Books
- Town and County Plats
- Photographic Materials
- Plans & Blueprints
- Vital Records
- Meeting Minutes
- Property Transfer Books
- Drainage Maps
- Public Notices
- Census Data
- Public Health Records
… and almost anything else your agency might have that was printed on paper, captured to microform, or contained in a photographic medium. Our experience with these and other record types makes Advantage the obvious choice to entrust your records with. We can convert any material into an easily accessible PDF, a web-enabled database, or any other output and format that fits your requirements. We have been helping government agencies ensure that public records are easily accessible, and that crucial documents are readily available, indexed, and the information they contain is much more discoverable. This is going to save space in your facility and time looking for the information you and your citizens want and need.
Our solutions provide greater efficiencies and less burden in fulfilling requests, performing research, and providing answers to inquiries that save both time and effort. For example, quickly search through your database by name, date range, keywords, etc., without the inconvenience (and expense) of dealing with a microfilm reader, cabinets of paper documents, boxes of records, or shelves of bound volumes.
