Library Digitization Provided by MTS Software Solutions

Archival Preservation and Public Accessibility
Are Dependent Upon Digitization of Library Collections

In this technology age, conservation supplies now include scanners, computers, printers, networks and software to tie them all together. Eliminating the need to directly handle light sensitive or fragile collections is made possible by digitizing the collection, putting it in a searchable digital database and providing access (paid/free) to that database over a computer network.

Rare Book Collection Digitized and Accessible Online

Delicate Collections Are Protected And Can Be Shared WorldWide

Caring for over a million library items, this university library has kept up with technology trends. Instead of a warehouse for books, visitors experience a learning and social environment with access to state-of-the-art technology. To continue to provide cutting edge services, they invited MTS Software Solutions to design a digital solution for their rare book collections. Once digital, a website was created to host the scanned books, and within 18 months, the solution more than paid for itself.

Our Botanical Collection literally comes alive with the hues that the book scanner creates.

- Archivist
for a Philadelphia Library

The large scanner is able to pick up the depth and texture of the scanned textiles; the quality is impressive.

- Special Collections Librarian

The software is very intuitive and doesn't take a lot of staff or help to be able to use it.

- Director of Library

This is much better than a flatbed scanner. We can easily scan information, faster, without needing to rescan.
