Our Philosophy

Commitment to Open Access
Open Access to scholarly and archival information drives creativity, advances critical research, and helps communities thrive. In collaboration with libraries, we seek to make digitized and born-digital cultural heritage and scholarly information discoverable, accessible, and reusable on the web. We extend that philosophy to our approach to building and maintaining open source repositories. Our clients retain full control of their collections—no lock-ins, no proprietary solutions.

Investment in Open Source, Community-Owned Infrastructure
We believe open source software best embodies and advances the interests of cultural heritage institutions. We actively participate in open source communities, contributing our knowledge, expertise, and code to support a vibrant ecosystem of infrastructure solutions for the library, archives, and museum community. We are proud to be partner-level members of the Islandora Foundation and Certified Fedora Contributors.

Holistic Service Model
We deliver a full suite of services: robust software tailored to meet your needs, along with strategic consulting services that help you maximize your collections’ impact. We combine experience developing Open Source digital repository infrastructure with expertise in information architecture, metadata modelling, user experience, needs assessment, and strategic planning.
