Document Processing

We use time-tested and up-to-date methods to create an efficient document processing system for you. Whether the process is used for our historical research services or for document collections generated elsewhere, we capture and store your information digitally, helping you eliminate paper storage and implement easy distribution, company-wide access, and effective security.

    Your information is:
  • Scanned and saved according to your specifications
  • Electronically stamped with unique identification numbers (Bates) on every page
  • Rendered text searchable using optical character recognition (OCR), and
  • Stored on external backup devices or uploaded to you via Heritage’s secure FTP or your site.

Case Study:

Heritage contracted with URS Corporation to research historic use of ordnance/ammunition ranges at 18 Air Force installations across the country falling under Air Combat Command or Air National Guard supervision including Barksdale AFB (LA), Barnes Municipal Airport, (MA), Beale AFB (CA), Boise Air Terminal, Gowen Field (ID), Columbia Falls AFS (ME), Coos Head Air National Guard Station (OR), Davis-Monthan AFB (AZ), Duluth International Airport (MN), Ellington Field (TX), Hector Field International Airport (ND), Langley AFB (VA), Martin State Airport (ND), Minot AFB (ND), Nellis AFB (NV), Offutt AFB (NE), Salt Lake International Airport (UT), Selfridge Air Guard Base (MI), and Seymour Johnson AFB (NC). Heritage's work contributed to Comprehensive Site Evaluations (CSE) prepared by URS.

Every document page and photograph collected for each installation was uniquely identified with a numbering systems and scanned and recorded on DVDs before going to the abstracting team to be included in the databases.


The work Heritage Research Center did finding, gathering and analyzing historical documents was an instrumental factor in my client's success in its federal civil lawsuit. Heritage Research Center staff was professional, easy to work with, and the quality of their work surpassed expectations. It was fortunate we had Heritage Research Center as part of our litigation team.
