Library Digitization Services
Museums, the government and military, private businesses, clubs and organizations, and other groups maintain specialized libraries full of rich content. Library digitization services can preserve everything, ensuring that should anything happen to the books or historical documents their importance will not be lost.
History: Accessible and Searchable
Digitization provides libraries with the necessary tools for study and research by implementing optical character recognition (OCR) technology to “read” to documents and enable comprehensive searchability. Once your documents have been through our digitization process, patrons will be able to search the library for any keyword!
Virtual libraries also expand the number of readers able to benefit from the library’s contents. Whether for internal only or full public use, virtual libraries can be accessed from anywhere there’s an internet connection. Libraries are meant to be used, and digitization makes searching, locating, and accessing information easier than ever.
Physical and Digital Preservation
Digital preservation creates a digital backup of a library’s collection, which protects the valuable information in the event of a disaster, but it also aids librarians and curators in their efforts to physically preserve rare or antique books. Once scanned and processed, a digital version of delicate books can be used in place of the physical original. This reduces wear on the item and allows archival safe storage to prolong its lifespan.
Many historical libraries contain unique books or papers of interest to scholars and researchers, but not everyone can travel easily. Digitization promotes better, more thorough research by providing digital versions of significant works to those who might not otherwise have been able to read them.
