What’s a guideline budget for digitization?
It is possible to set a direction for digitizing archives. Of course, everything depends on the state of the archive and the work that needs to be done in advance to optimally carry out the scanning processes. In particular, the labour-intensive components determine the amount of the investment. Overall, however, it can be assumed that costs will be approximately €300 - €500 per linear metre of archive. The start-up costs are high, so the price per linear metre decreases as more metres of archives are digitized.
