Abstract

The terms digitization and digitalization have often been used interchangeably, confounded, and misunderstood [1]. Case studies on archives digitization, which can be understood to be the transformation of analog resources to digital formats, are plentiful, but there appears to be less discussion of digitization as but one aspect of the digitalization of archives, here meant to include the broader digital transformation of business models and services. The example of the Total Digital Access to the League of Nations Archives project can be used to examine how comprehensive digitalization, including digitization alongside traditional analog concerns, have shaped the definition of project workflows and operations within the more limited sphere of its digitization operations.
