SunTec Digital helps libraries, archives and museums preserve their valuable collections, save storage space and deliver efficient services by employing centralized databases, mobile apps, and online services to offer easy accessibility to their subscribers and target audiences.
Being ePublishing solutions provider for Libraries, SunTec Digital deftly converts records, collections, and repositories in a prescribed format for easy access across different platforms, making books available to all authorized users simultaneously, as opposed to physical copies with single-reader access. We have extensive experience working on archival projects that include making use of special handling techniques for scanning and digitizing rare, fragile documents.
SunTec Digital can also help libraries with Access-control protections by implementing DRM solutions – to safeguard books from getting mishandled, lost, stolen, misplaced, misfiled, or deliberately copied and shared with unauthorized individuals, as in the case of print books.
We work closely with the clients to understand their precise requirements, employ the correct methodology and produce easily accessible, accurate electronic files that better serve the individual community and institutional world at large. We hold experience of working with NLM, HighWire Press, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Library of Congress, among others.
SunTec Digital as ePublishing solutions provider for libraries has expertise in working with most of the Schemas and DTDs used for scholarly works like METS, ALTO, PRISM, etc. We convert from a variety of source files, including printed, scanned, or electronic formats, into searchable and fully-tagged files in compliance with standard DTDs like TEI-Lite, HTML, XML, or a proprietary specification. We can also create images in formats like JPEG, TIFF, PNG, etc., as well as clean & resize the existing ones.
Our ePublishing teams are adept at writing and extracting Metadata, and producing Machine-Readable Cataloging (MARC) records with the optimum level of accuracy. We use DRM solutions to safeguard the contents against unauthorized access and ensure complete security.
The client wanted to digitize the scarce and antiquarian collection of the modern and medieval history of the British Isles and convert it into TEI XML format conforming to TEI P5 Standard to facilitate re-using and re-purposing of content. The project entailed the digitization of 300 Calendars of State Papers in a year’s time, with every calendar divided into series. There were several volumes of titles in each series, and each title contained approximately 680 pages, overall making the project quite voluminous.
