Digital Archive SystemAKITA PREFECTURAL LIBRARY, DIGITAL ARCHIVE SYSTEM
Capable of accessing all th digital assets in Akita Prefecture's archive facilities
Tens of thousands of images and half a million indexed data of the Akita Prefectural Library as well as documents owned by six external institutions including museums, public record offices, and art galleries have been digitized, cross indexed, and made searchable. Each institution originally had used different cataloguing formats, however this complication has been resolved by unifying them using the AMLAD mapping feature, thus powering Discovery Service. The digitized data has been linked to the National Diet Library, to effectively share electronic information and to function as a community hub especially for elderly and young families.
