Warwickshire County Record Office in 2007/2008 acquired the Waller of Woodcote archive collection of family, estate letters and deeds for £168,951. The collection provides an insight into Warwickshire life as far back as the 12th Century.
The documents within the collection were irreplaceable, where the working area outside of the strong rooms and conservation area may affect the condition of the documents. Therefore attention was placed to position capture devices to compensate for deformations and not to place stress by trying to flatten documents.
Two physical identifiers were captured with each object image, the record office object identifier and Kodak Q-13 based colour target. A reference ISO IT8.7 target was captured to maintain a record of the device performance on location; which was used in the conversion of the raw data to master file format in the required Adobe RGB colour space and 1.2k sRGB surrogate images.
