Target #2: 60% of all Recorded documents submitted electronically
Analysis of results and challenges: Electronic Recording (e-Recording) is a time saving and efficient system of recording, it allows the customer to initiate the online submission process and once accepted, have immediate access to the index as well as the document image. Increasing numbers of customers are using this service. As a result, there has been an increase in e-Recording vendors offering online electronic recording. The Recorder’s office is moving forward with additional vendors to develop the ability to accept multiple merchant submissions to increase e-Recording volumes, which will increase present staff productivity.

Target #1: All historic and current documents scanned and accessible to the public.
Analysis of results and challenges: The conversion of historic documents to digital images has been an ongoing project since 2001. Technology has improved over the last 20 years, allowing the ability to improve poor digital images with clearer versions. The division continues to discover and release historic documents that are not yet imaged and available on the public website, while enhancing and replacing illegible images.
