Bibliotheca Alexandrina Offers Open Source Digitization System

Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA; www.bibalex.org) announced the release of the Digital Assets Factory (DAF) version 2.0. It is available for download at http://wiki.bibalex.org/DAFWiki and is offered under the General Public License (GPL) as an open source application. DAF v 2.0 can be considered to provide an all-in-one solution for any digitization system.

DAF v 2.0 is designed to provide all the necessary tools required to manage the whole process of a digitization workflow, including its various phases, user management, file movement, and archiving. It provides the flexibility to manage multiple simultaneous projects with a diversity of materials such as books, journals, newspapers, manuscripts, unbound materials, audio, video, and slides. DAF v 2.0 can be integrated with the current tools used at an organization and can be configured for large and challenging digitization projects. The system is fully deployed in the BA digitization laboratory and has been working smoothly for more than a year.Source: Bibliotheca Alexandrina
