Modern, Easy to Use, Affordable Digital Collection Solution

Now it’s Super-Easy for Libraries and Archives to Organize, Explore, Promote, and Share Digital Collections

With MONTAGEdc, taking control of your digital collections has never been easier! You can quickly create:

  • Custom digital collection landing page for public access
  • Unlimited sub-collections
  • Private-access digital collections
  • Institutional archives
  • Multi-linqual collections

And easily integrate those collections with your VERSO library database via Z39.50.

The sleek user interface will turn your digital collection into digital eye-candy that can be:

  • Quickly searched, with the search term highlighted
  • Browsed for related Wikipedia-like information
  • Filtered by collections, topics, dates, and formats
  • Explored via preformatted subject searches and topic lists
  • Digitally accessed from the full record display – image, audio, video, PDF, and more
  • Shared via email or social media via user-created lists due to persistent links

MONTAGEdc provides simplified, template-driven, standards-based digital collections management enabling quick and easy digital collection creation while accommodating a variety of digital asset and archival needs. You can:

  • Batch import records or copy catalog
  • Easily move items from one collection to another
  • Use the provided extended Dublin Core template or easily create custom metadata templates that accommodate the archiving of different digital collections and sub-collection material types such as maps, places, or people
  • Attach an unlimited number of a variety of item types to a record (create compound objects)
  • Add indexed transcripts to all file types (PDF’s, jpg’s, movie, sound, word, excel, etc.) and if OCRed, edit the transcript with annotations or corrections
  • Create Synonyms Lists to increase the relevancy of search results (useful for name changes or ‘aka’ entries)
  • Add searchable metadata on the collection level, not just on the record level, for multiple collection types
  • Upload your own authority-controlled subject entry or create dynamic subject entries – a list of previously used subject entries is displayed for rapid metadata creation. Look up lists are created based on metadata entered for subjects, creators, media type, etc. providing for consistent usage of terms
