dc.description.abstractPaper documents can be converted into digital form, as a collection of images, or a combination of ASCII text and images. Full text and image document databases, display advantages and disadvantages during scanning and conversion processes. Conversion of paper thesis documents could be eliminated, if thesis documents could be submitted in digital form, for storage on optical disks. Utilizing existing paper thesis docurents, image and full text databases were developed and evaluated to determine the best digital form for storage of paper documents. Analysis was performed on a thesis document in digital form, to determine the most feasible format for digital document submission. This thesis concludes that conversion of paper documents to digital form should not be pursued. Instead, thesis documents should be submitted in digital form for direct conversion and storage on optical disks. Follow on thesis research is recommended to build an in-house CD-ROM mastering system for this purpose.en_US
