We digitise

  • Bibliographic materials
  • Archival materials
  • Periodical publications
  • Maps
  • Slides
  • Photos
  • Other types of materials (you can request information via email or by calling the telephone number you can find at the bottom of the page)

We specialise in the digitalisation of old archival materials.

We use different types of scanners depending on the type of work we need to perform.

Quality of the digitalisation processes

The digitalisation process is reviewed and subjected to quality procedures that guarantee the final results and that cover everything, from the beginning of the process until the final creation of the digital objects.

The digital objects are described in METS files where extensions are added containing descriptive metadata –with the bibliographical description and copies of the digitised document in DC, MODS or MARCXML formats–, administrative metadata –with conservation metadata (PREMIS 2.2)–, technical metadata –MIX– and copyright and intellectual property metadata –METSRights–, all of them ready to be integrated into the corresponding database and/or repository.

Both the images and the XML files obtained during the digitalisation process are validated using JHOVE (JSTOR/Harvard Object Validation Environment).

Options that enrich the process

  • OCR Service (Optical Character Recognition of digital objects containing text)
  • Metadata and standards (necessary to give visibility to the digital objects and facilitate the information exchange with other libraries and archives)

Iinternational standards and metadata

What undoubtedly characterises the digitalisation processes carried out by DIGIBÍS is their rigorous application of a large number of international standards that guarantee the final quality of the project and the interoperability of results.

Fortunately, the technical specifications that both public and private institutions have been publishing over the last few years require them as well, even though their scope is not as wide as the one that DIGIBÍS is capable of providing and which, of course, it often offers as an improvement for customers.
