Fresh Meadows, NY – December 12, 2016 – Data Conversion Laboratory (DCL), industry leader in converting content into digital formats, is currently providing digitization services to the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) through the Library of Congress’ (LOC) Federal Library and Information Network (FEDLINK) program.
Over two million pages of various types of internal documents that serve as valuable research materials for the agency’s staff are being digitized to make them more searchable and accessible. This months-long project will include OCR processing, generation of metadata, digitization of microforms, maps, posters, and computer print-outs, to name just a few processes in this highly complex venture.
Creating or aggregating content and actually getting readers to see it are two sides of the same coin. Without both content and a reliable way for people to find it, the motivation to create or house such content becomes less. One feeds the other. So, how do content aggregators and authors find that sweet spot with content consumers to mutually beneficial ends? The answer is simple: Metadata.
Fresh Meadows, NY – October 11, 2016 – Data Conversion Laboratory, Inc. (DCL), for 35 years an industry leader in organizing, converting and enhancing content into digital formats, is proud to be officially certified as a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC), the first national certifier of Women Business Enterprises.
While the trend in recent years has been to focus on the cloud, a majority of companies still maintain their own data centers or a combination of their own supplanted with a portion of cloud space/storage. Years’ worth of content resides in these data centers, as well as older content that continues in printed forms only. The increasing ease of finding and sharing digital content creates more opportunities than ever to grow and expand business—by digitizing assets that might have previously been published, stored, and forgotten.
