Databases & Database-Driven Websites
HistoryIT transforms flat file documents and paper records into dynamic, robust databases. The database architecture is developed based on the specific needs of the client’s collected data. HistoryIT custom designs web interfaces through which the client can add and update the information in their database. If the project requires a public website in addition to the database web interface, we can also design a site that allows users to interact with, but not edit, the data.
Knowledge Management Systems
Knowledge Management Systems are internal, password-protected tools through which organizations and companies can manage all information necessary to the functionality of the group. HistoryIT works with clients to develop a vocabulary for the system that matches how they interact with their information. This information may be comprised of research, image inventories, document collections, or other compilations of data. The Knowledge Management System will allow clients to easily sort, search, and retrieve information according to the standards they have defined.
HistoryIT has experience digitizing a wide variety of archival collections, including image, document, and mixed media collections. We offer accessioning, inventory, and digitization services for online archives and can also build the management and display systems around the new digital archives. HistoryIT can build revenue models for the digital archive as well, so that clients may charge users to download items from the collection.
