SCANNING

Scan and OCR a Document

The Annoyance:

Well, you can congratulate me on my new job, for a start. I'm the Senior Archivist at ACME, Inc. Not bad, huh? But here's what I've got to do: transfer three storage rooms full of boxed documents into an electronic library that everyone can access through their PCs using Word 2003. I've got plenty of time, but I think my patience will wear through before too long if I spend all day copy-typing documents. Still, I need the money.

The Fix:

Quell any thoughts of arson that have strayed through your mind. First, you need a clear policy on which documents to keep and which to shred immediately. This book can't help you on that, but anything more than a few years old is unlikely to be of much use. Did you know that Microsoft encourages its employees to clear out their email when it reaches the ripe old age of three months? Heck, even some cheeses are older than that.
