A new company has been appointed to help Jersey Archive store and preserve its huge volumes of digital records.
Arkivum Perpetua has a digital preservation and archival safeguarding system which is designed specifically for the heritage sector.
It will be in place by the end of 2018, costing £18,500 per year initially, rising thereafter as more digital records are transferred.
The Collections Director at Jersey Heritage has said that the help to store the digital records is much needed.
Jersey Archive holds the complete public record of States of Jersey, a photo archive of around 1.5 million images as well as digitised artefacts, such as registration cards from the Occupation.
