‘The Beaver’ is the weekly newspaper of the London School of Economics Students Union at the LSE. Max Communications was commissioned to digitise all issues since 1949 when the newspaper was first produced.

The work involved colour balancing and sizing of each individual copy to be incorporated into ‘page turning software’. The work demanded full image consistency to capture the look, feel and content of each page.

The archive of back issues is now a searchable resource and we were responsible for the full Optical Character Recognition of over 20,000 pages of text. The output of the OCR process involved production of PDF/A, full Tiff images, text and XML files.
