The BA Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage has embarked upon the digitization of more than 90 million documents kept in the National Archives of Egypt. It aims to preserve the physical condition of national archives by producing watermarked, high-resolution digital images of 130,000 valuable documents, thereby reducing the need for physical access. Within a period of four years, applying state-of-the-art audio technology and employing more than 1000 highly trained fresh graduates, 25 million documents will be stored in a database, while 150,000 documents will be scanned and published on a website providing easy access to national archives in a digital format.
