The SRMT Environment Division Archives is designed to maintain in digital format all maps, blueprints, photographs and posters, and documents relating to environmental programs.
Graphic images are presently being scanned and formatted for uploading into Content DM software for distribution on the Internet. Documents will be scanned into Adobe Pdf format and also made available for distribution on the Internet.
The objective of the SRMT Environment Division Archives is to allow dissemination, modeling and analysis of information currently held by various programs. Digitizing this information will also reduce the amount of physical storage space necessary to house these documents. Documents and graphics that are considered to be culturally sensitive or of a legal nature will be held internally with access restricted to SRMT community members and SRMT employees only.
Large format images and documents are being scanned using a Hewlett Packard DesignJet 815mfp 42” automatic feed scanner and printer. This hardware is unique to the area and to fulfill grant requirements is available for use by the general public on an at cost basis when normal operational scheduling allow. Scanning and printing services of educational and community exhibits have been provided for local organizations such as the Akwesasne Library and Cultural Center, the Akwesasne Freedom School and St. Lawrence University.
