AIS Wins VCU Scanning Contract

The Greater Richmond ARC's (formerly the Association for Retarded Citizens) Industrial Services division was selected by VCU Honors College to scan and convert paper documents to digital files. Dr. Anne Chandler, Senior Associate Dean of the Honors College, decided to outsource the scanning project to ARC after meeting with ARC staff and learning of its scanning capabilities.

The purpose of the contract is to reduce VCU staff time by digitizing the reference letters, test scores and transcripts that are associated with student applications to the Honors College. The key to the success of this project is accurate indexing for each document. Indexing provides the Honors College with the ability to search the digitized document quickly and easily.
