Our vision is to help libraries create online digital collections that are more than just static sets of content. We work hard to help attract an audience to the collections we help digitize; we create opportunities for that audience to engage with the content, with the library, and with each other; and we work with the library to develop and maintain the collection over time.
In addition we believe strongly in following standards and best practices, even for small projects with small budgets. It’s unfortunate that while large, high-profile digitization projects can typically adopt appropriate standards, the costs involved often mean smaller projects cannot do so. Our goal is to force digitization costs down so it costs no more to digitize content “properly” (i.e. following appropriate standards and best practices) than it does to use low-cost solutions that aren’t standards compliant.
