Correcting Bad Images

by @ 2:19 am. Filed under Registry Ops

We know that to successfully change to a paperless registry of deeds we need to correct “all” of our record book image problems, especially those in the older books. Here’s where we are currently… for the past six months we have had three employees all working “part-time” finding and re-scanning bad images. This works…but it is taking too long. We need to dedicate more manpower to this project. The following relates to the image problem…trust me: Even though we no longer make paper record books available to the public, we still print them. We need to do this. We create archival microfilm using a Minolta DAR 2800. The DAR 2800 is basically a camera. We auto feed paper copies of the record books through this machine. It takes a picture of each page and creates microfilm. We know the process is out dated and have explored several ways to create microfilm directly from electronic images. We are committed to making this change in the early fall to coincide with the implementation of full “scan and return”. I know you’re still waiting…how does this relate to correcting bad images? Well, switching over to creating microfilm from electronic images will free up employees. These people will be re-assigned to work solely on correcting bad images. I expect that sometime after Labor Day we will triple our efforts on this project. Very simply put, a paperless registry of deeds “works”. If you don’t believe it, take a ride to Worcester.
