(Material taken from web site).
Digital & Preservation Resources Centers
"The Digital & Preservation Resources Centers digitize newspapers, books,
manuscripts, photographic formats and more and provide high quality
preservation microfilming and storage. The Centers enrich your digital
collections by adding metadata and full-text search capabilities so
collections are fully retrievable, not just identifiable. Centers provide a
menu of services so you can select the appropriate type and level of
service for each specific project. Services range from basic reformatting
to metadata creation, text conversion and mark-up and delivery of web-ready
packages of digital collections."
"The Digital Archive offers a safe, reliable, standards-based, long-term
solution for the life cycle management of digital collections. A format
protection service ensures continued access to collections as technology
evolves. You can work with the OCLC Digital & Preservation Resources
Centers to prepare your content for digital storage or use OCLC tools to
create metadata within your current workflow."
Digital & Preservation Co-op
"OCLC is expanding on its history of providing collaborative services to
libraries by establishing the OCLC Digital & Preservation Co-op. Co-op
participants will work together to develop educational resources on
standards and best practices for digitization and preservation and to
provide access to a growing body of networked digital collections
worldwide. It provides a clearinghouse for information on grant and other
funding resources and on digitization collaborative projects. Co-op
participants come together to share knowledge and to increase the value of
digital collections by combining them with other collections. The Co-op
provides the latest in best practices, standards and technology white
papers to help you learn more about digitization and preservation trends.
