We will meet to discuss your collection and what you’d like to create.
The process begins with a consultation in which we discuss your intentions for your project, the size and condition of your collection, and the best delivery vehicle for your project.
We transcribe and/or scan your letters, diaries, journals, notebooks, oral histories, etc.
Transcription &/or scanning of handwritten or previously typed documents for which no data files are available.
Transcription of audio and/or video material. Audio material may be digital or analog (mini or micro cassette). Video must be digital.
The digital version of the material is organized – usually by date and/or subject – for easy retrieval, and it is delivered in your preferred format (including but not limited to the following).
All materials will be transcribed into Microsoft Word or scanned and delivered to you via email, Dropbox, &/or on an M-Disc.
Your transcribed materials can be compiled into an interactive PDF with table of contents and search capabilities.
We will create a book from your transcribed materials, using an online service to self-publish and print books for distribution.
Large amounts of material may best be shared via a password-protected website.
JournalScribe will come to you to evaluate your collection and prep it for shipment.
JournalScribe will repackage your collection using archival quality materials to protect it.
