Next-Generation Digital Libraries: Digitization, Conversion, Hosting, and Value-Added Services

Are your valuable foreign language newspaper collections attracting more dust than patrons?
Do you have unique collections on microfilm that can only be viewed on one or two old machines?

What Are Your Projects? We Can Help! East View can help you transform your institution’s one-of-a-kind collections, currently underutilized for scholarship, into accessible resources for researchers today with our “Conversion and Hosting Services.”

If you have large stacks of newspapers, or boxes of archival documents or microfilm, East View can help you transform them. Any content owned by the customer institution can be converted into a more accessible online resource through our comprehensive Next-Gen Digital Library Services, including planning, digitization, and hosting.

  • We understand the value of originals and will always treat your materials, including rare, fragile, and often one-of-a-kind items, with the utmost care.
  • We take pride meeting and exceeding industry standards in creating bibliographic data, whether RDA MARC records or detailed metadata, no matter the language of the collection.

Transform and Modernize your Library

East View will work with you to assess the size and scope of your collection and determine the technical architecture needed to accommodate your delivery requirements, such as bandwidth, latency, capacity, access control, availability of resources, and more.

We will load your content onto the East View Universal Database™ (UDB) platform and search engine make your collections cross-searchable among one another, and also with subscribed database content from East View’s commercially distributed UDB databases. East View can mount your collection for online use exclusively by your institution, across your entire IP range. Access is via IP or password authentication with unlimited simultaneous users.
