Different techniques and methods are implemented by archivists in archives in order to protect and ensure the maximum usage of archival material. Digitisation is one of these primary techniques. It provides maximum usage and also protection of the archival material as well. Besides the advantages of digitisation it is afterall a technical process. Thus it should be carried out by experts, should be preplanned and factors like archival material and users should be taken into consideration. Within this context in this study entitled ‘Effective Digitisation in Archives’, the importance of digitisation in archives and the points that are important for an effective digitisation are emphasized. In addition, the basic requirements for an effective digitisation process are presented.
