The Paper Repository
- Documents are maintained in their original paper format. Letter paper, legal paper, binders, red ropes, file folders, CDs, audiotapes, etc. are kept in boxes. Boxes are labeled to various degrees of accuracy and/or continuity. Blueprints are folded, rolled, and rubber banded to various degree of organization.
- A standard 10x12x15 banker box will hold from 2,000-2,500 pages of paper depending on size and barriers.
- Paper repositories are typically stored at off-site storage facilities, on shelving in an office space/closet, or boxes stacked on top of boxes in an office space/closet area.
- Typical boxes need to be delivered from off-site storage or retrieved from one office area and put into a conference room for review. Some paper repositories may allow unsupervised access to all boxes in a storage area.
- Review of documents in a paper repository is limited to the hours of business of the holder of the documents.
- Review of documents in a conference room is usually unsupervised.
- Manual document review, no OCR Optical Character Recognition.
- Mutiple-copy sets
- Potential of misfiles
