Little Compton Historical Society
The Digital Ark (TDAC) partners with the Little Compton Historical Society (LCHS) to digitally preserve, manage, and share its collections in an online digital archive with an e-commerce module. TDAC has completed high-resolution digital image capture for maps, paintings, photographs, textiles and 3D objects. Thanks to TDAC’s online digital archiving system, LCHS staff can easily search for items, download high-resolution images in multiple formats (with or without digital watermarks), edit metadata, and review user Comments. In addition, this image portal allows the public to browse and search collections, add comments, rate images, request images, collaborate through multiple favorites albums, share via social media, and buy print-on-demand archival reproductions and digital downloads. As the stewards of LCHS’s digital archives, TDAC follows best-practices digital preservation and metadata standards to ensure the long-term sustainability of these historic collections.
