Digital photography and the digitalisation of foreign archives

Christopher Gennari
2008 International Journal of Digital Culture and Electronic Tourism  
Digital photography allows for the collection of large amounts of archival documents in a short period of time. This has many benefits for the researcher including a greater convenience of time, a dramatic savings of money, and an increased flexibility in using the documents. This essay describes my own experience using digital photography in the Riksarkivet in Stockholm, as well as the materials, methods, advantages and disadvantages of using a digital workflow for research.
