If necessary scanned records should be compared to the original paper document to ensure accuracy o The number of original paper documents must be compared to the number of scanned documents to ensure that every document was scanned
IMAGE ENHANCEMENT There are times when there is a problem with the final scanned image that makes it difficult to read and less than usable. If the scanned documents are to replace the original paper, these common problems must be corrected and addressed in the scanning procedures: o Speckles or spots on the scanned image o Skewed images that are not properly aligned o When only part of the document is captured by the scanner o When the scanned record is of poor quality and is not clearly readable See http://f2.washington.edu/fm/recmgt/scanning “Image Enhancement” for more informationhttp://f2.washington.edu/fm/recmgt/scanning
