Making digital collections easy

Our Vision

Our vision is to help libraries and cultural heritage institutions to create online digital collections that are more than just static sets of content.

We make it easy to attract an audience to your collection; we create opportunities for that audience to engage with your content, with the library, and with each other.

We work with you to develop and maintain the collection over time.
