New: Veridian User Text Correction Guidelines
Our Team: Meet Pei our Project Lead

Hello friend of Veridian,

Read about the rise and rise of User Text Correction and meet our Project Lead, Pei.
New: Crowdsourced User Text Correction Guidelines
We’ve all been watching communities around the world adapting to pandemic related life challenges. Newly housebound, some people have thrown themselves into hobbies and culinary creations, while others have wondered how on earth to fill the time.

While we’ve lost access to libraries, universities and museums, the digital collections these institutions have carefully built are enjoying a surge in numbers. With more time on their hands, people have taken the opportunity to explore these rich historical resources.

Similarly, we’ve seen that for some Veridian based collections, our crowdsourced User Text Correction feature has been busier than ever. Text correction helps to improve the searchability of a digital collection, as readers spot and amend any OCR errors that occur. It’s interesting and rewarding work - you get to deep dive into the content and enjoy the satisfaction of leaving it better, and more accessible than you found it.

We’ve just released this handy guide for those wanting more background and some direction on how best to make corrections.
Meet Pei, Veridian Project Lead
Pei is an experienced software developer and designer, and an important part of our team.
He’s been with Veridian since 2017 when an influx of new digital collection projects prompted us to add another desk to the office. We were lucky to find Pei, who is a skilled problem solver with a knack for collection customizations.  

How do you like working at Veridian?

The Veridian team works together closely and helps each other. There is a feeling of family in the workplace. Although we work hard, the atmosphere is always comfortable, not stressful.

It’s very satisfying to contribute to cultural heritage through our work - bringing historic newspapers and magazines from libraries to the web.

You’ve helped build many new Veridian digital collections. What do you think sets them apart?

Veridian is an excellent product and development platform. It can handle various sources of data, including non-standard data. It’s easy to develop new features and to create stylish and easy-to-use user interfaces. Most importantly, what sets Veridian apart is that it’s so well supported by our professional team.
Until next month, best wishes from the Veridian team
Stefan, Michael, Jeffrey, Andrew, Richard, Pei, Shane, Miriam, Ryan and Wayne.
