We are proud to work with many of the world’s leading libraries, archives and research institutions to make their materials available online to the scholarly community.
We pride ourselves on our excellent relationships with our partners, many of whom we work with long-term, across multiple projects. Key to our partnerships is our commitment to ensuring that the entire digitization process is managed by us without adversely impacting the day-to-day work of the library.
Our editorial team bring expertise to all areas of the digitization lifecycle, from selection of content to the preparation of metadata and the scanning of heritage materials.
We maintain good communication with all stakeholders, working closely with library management, curators and archivists, conservators and digitization labs.
I'm often asked how we go about putting one of our projects together. The answer is that every project is unique and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ template. Many of our products bring sources together from multiple archives, and it is always tremendously exciting to see material from disparate physical locations coming together online. During the course of our projects our Development Editors will make many visits to our partner archives, and always physically review every document to ensure its suitability and condition for digitization. Our partners really appreciate this hands-on approach, and we in turn love spending time in their archives and really getting to know the source content.

The production team work very closely with our archival partners to ensure digitization runs smoothly, from agreeing technical specifications to ensuring that scheduling is convenient and that any necessary conservation work is accommodated. We take pride in our rigorous QC process, at all times ensuring that the images produced are of the highest standard.
Our strong relationships with our archival partners are maintained long after the digitization process has completed; and whether the archive is contributing a small amount to a multi-archive resource, or is the sole partner providing hundreds of thousands of images, our commitment to working with those archives, listening to their concerns and ensuring that the best possible result is achieved remains the same.
