Use case
Preserving digitisation masters in libraries

Digitisation projects in libraries

  • The project generates very rapidly huge volumes of complex digital objects with images, PDF and other formats.
  • The masters are very valuable, and they are useful to generate high resolution copies or new derivatives.
  • Several collections are included (books, audio, video, photo, maps, etc.).
  • The project is executed during several years, and the standards and practices evolve or are laid off during this time.
  • DVD and external disks are used for storage. These media are difficult to document and link with the online catalogue of the institution.

The solution: preserving with libsafe

  • Fast delivery, thanks to the default preservation plan for libraries.
  • Ideal for complex objects. All the files and folders are kept together, verified and documented with metadata.
  • Manage all collections in the same platform, each one with its own structure and preservation processes.
  • Standard or custom metadata. Whether you use Marc21, Dublin Core or a personal scheme, you can import metadata from your catalogue.
  • At least, two copies per object. We recommend to use your current storage vendor for one copy and another one on libdata units.
  • Built-in catalogue, so that search and reuse the masters is even easier.
