|Universities, colleges, and other academic institutions often have huge content repositories spanning centuries and comprised of documents, newspapers, and other printed materials. Managing this disparate collection and enabling easy access to researchers, students, and the public presents many logistical and technical challenges.Olive provides a unique approach for automatically categorizing your information and dramatically improving its online usability. Olive offers powerful solutions that help librarians digitize information and provide online access to content stored on microfilm, microfiche, paper, or digital documents. Olive automates the conversion process, from scanning paper or microfilm, through OCR, and indexing the archive to make it searchable at a very granular level with highly relevant results. We have vast experience in overcoming common problems associated with digitizing old documents. Our solutions address skewing, noise, fading, yellowing, scratches, dense text, ink problems, and multiple fonts.
Segmentation adds context to archives
Olive adds significant value to content using its proprietary segmentation process. This process breaks documents into logical components, such as articles, charts, tables, and graphics. Users can view the information in its original format and search it at its most granular level. Our unique approach provides context around search results, making information more valuable when a patron searches through a large archive. The underlying XML enables long-term preservation of content in an open format that is independent of any proprietary software. In addition, storing documents as a collection of XML components enables libraries to repurpose their content in new and innovative ways such as building special collections to commemorate historic events.
