Today, bringing your library stock online has become easy, especially when you use an intelligent database system like OLEFA.
However, sometimes it needs more than a good software to organize your library in a way that people love working there.
Administration should be fluent and intuitive and readers should perceive your library as a comfortable service and an enjoyable place to stay.
We have gained a lot of experience in designing and organizing libraries and bringing them online. So far we have supported public and educational libraries, and libraries from administrations and non-profit organizations.
Data collection and organisation has always been a highly complex and time consuming task. This is true for any organisation, small or big. New digital storage technologies make organisation easier and more flexible because one data-item can be accessed and published through different channels.
However, most organisations have to face the problem about how to convert their analogue data into digital data. And they all have to find an answer to the following questions: How should it be done? Who should do it? How much time will the conversion process take? How many human and technological resources do I need?
To make it clear, the most expensive way it can be done is to do it on your own. You will have to buy high end equipment and professional software, invest a lot of your human resources on the digitising process after having given them a serious and expensive professional training.
DigiCare offers: Analysis of the actual data collecting and storing procedures, digitising of pictures, analogue videos, sound recordings and paper documents, compression and conversion of digital data into specific formats for Internet, CD-ROM, DVD or print publishing, conversion from digital to analogue, high end storage organisation and more.
