During our Heritage Lottery Fund supported Re:collect project we digitised over 40,000 historic photographs, films, and audio recordings. The collections created many terabytes of data, all carefully organised, described, and stored on servers with full disk redundancy and backup.
To help us better manage and build capacity for future digitisation projects, Azook have engaged Montala to install and support the open source ResourceSpace Digital Asset Management system. It will enable us to better manage our files and metadata, provide better search and auditing tools, and handle automatic creation of access copies.
We are very excited to continue improving our services and infrastructure, and utilising them to help provide better access and digital preservation of Cornwall’s unique audio-visual heritage.
