Technology exists today to convert hard-copy texts using optical scanners and storing in a digital formal on optical disks. This thesis conducts an indepth current technology research of optical scanners, optical storage mediums, and optical information systems. Utilizing the thesis documents presently stored in the library aboard Naval Postgraduate School, as a statistical base, this research analyzes the requirements to convert the thesis documents to digital format. This thesis concludes that an image optical information system is a viable alternate to storing hard-copy documents and recommends follow-on thesis research to build an in-house optical information system.
