The Road to Paperless
Villano, Matt
Campus Technology, v20 n3 p40-42, 44-45 Nov 2006
More and more colleges and universities today have discovered electronic record-keeping and record-sharing, made possible by document imaging technology. Across the country, schools such as Monmouth University (New Jersey), Washington State University, the University of Idaho, and Towson University (Maryland) are embracing document imaging. Yet there remain campus administrators mired in paper records, unaware of the relief the technology offers. Document imaging provides the capability to capture, store, manage, and route documentation in a secure electronic manner. With this technology, paper documents, photos, and graphics can be scanned and saved as images, organized into electronic folders, linked to business applications, and retrieved by users. Benefits of this approach include: (1) Documents are easy to find and retrieve; (2) Enhanced ability to share documents across campus; (3) Replacement of microfiche; and (4) Preservation of document integrity. Additionally, document imaging can save money on both printing and storage costs. Four institutions with varying needs, challenges, and budgets share their stories.
