Are you prepared for the unimaginable?
Nothing is more powerful a reminder of the fragility of life, even our existence, than a pandemic. Are we truly prepared for the unexpected? Are we prepared to change the way we conduct business? How will life go on?
As the world turns to online resources for finance, meetings, shopping, even family gatherings, it is clear that digital infrastructure has “saved the day” for many. That is the core of our business -- helping organizations digitally preserve and host historical information online where it can be easily searched and explored. In a time of social distancing, people are conducting genealogical or other historical research from home and need access to your community's history including life-cycle events.
Further, what makes digital archive preservation an imperative rather than a luxury is the rapid change taking place in community newspapers. While some are closing their doors, merging with other papers, or halting printing altogether, we cannot afford to have these precious archives lost in the shuffle.
ArchiveInABox helps communities preserve and make their history accessible even in our own state where The Jewish Transcript closed its doors several years ago. While we were asked to scan only a portion of their archives, those pages -- some from the first year of publication in 1924 -- are now accessible on a dedicated webpage.
Remembrance is a critical component of Judaism - remembering the past and the present; remembering the people and events who contributed to your community story. ArchiveInABox helps communities preserve and provide online access to the information and people in your newspaper archives so that they can be remembered today and by future generations.
