Throughout this website Veridian and Veridian services are used to describe a wide range of services and workflows to support newspaper digitization projects. Veridian is also the name of our flagship software product, for online search, discovery, and display of digitized newspaper collections.
Unfortunately there is no clear consensus on what to call software products for online management, search, and display of digital heritage collections. Some libraries call them Content Management Systems (CMS), some prefer Digital Collection Management System, Digital Library Software, Digital Asset Management System (DAMS), Digital Archive Software, Institutional Repository Software, Web Portal Software, or a variety of other things. We quite like Discovery and Delivery Platform, but whatever you call it Veridian is software for putting digital collections online in a searchable, organized way.
Try Veridian yourself!
