Newspaper clipping management

I was recently asked to advise on the best process for scanning and cataloguing an extensive catalogue of newspaper clippings for future reference and research.

After a consultancy period and an examination of the company's needs and initial budgets I have implemented a simple system utilising a process of scanning images directly into Adobe Lightroom and using  the image processing and cataloguing capabilities of Lightroom to maintain the collection.

Further development has been planned to provide a bespoke system with optical character recognition to convert the scanned images into fully searchable text.
