Registered Land Certificate Storage

Through the years the registry has used several ways to organize and store Registered Land certificates. The first storage method was bound books. About three years ago we changed this and began storing certificates in file folders held in conventional file cabinets. Both systems worked well, but consumed large amounts of floor space. Because we scan new and changed certificates daily, the public views electronic images rather than the original.
The public's use of digital images instead of paper gives us the opportunity to change to a space saving storage system. We decided metal file shelves similar to those used to hold medical records would be very efficient, so we purchase five of these.
Last week we finished assembling the units and will begin filling them with new certificates in the next two weeks.
