  • Archival assessments
  • Audits
  • Acquisition policies
  • Digitization blueprints

For more than 40 years, History Factory has helped hundreds of organizations create and manage their archives. Our time-tested approach has been proven to:

  • Improve speed of access for users across the entire organization, using tools like our LuminARC™ database.
  • Create a practical, easy-to-use archive that becomes an invaluable resource
