Thailand Digitizing Its Archives

The National Archives of Thailand is in the process of digitizing its collections. “A huge task is digitising the microfilms that contain records of over 15 million written materials. The archives have only 131 staff and an annual budget of 80 million baht, so it will take time. So far, 45 microfilm rolls have been digitised and it is estimated that all of them will be ready for service next year. The equipment for this task is worth more than 2 million baht.” 80 million baht is a little over $2 million USD.
