Veridian’s Diary: Date validation and new Veridian viewer
Learn: Veridian’s complete services for digitization projects

Hello friend of Veridian,

For June we are covering Veridian’s source data validation and new viewer capabilities, as well as our key services.
Veridian’s Diary: Date validation and new Veridian viewer
Whilst working on the Princeton University Library collection ‘Papers of Princeton’ recently, we reviewed a validation warning from Veridian regarding an irregular newspaper date.

The 31 February 1924 issue of the Daily Princetonian, which appears to have been produced and dated in the spirit of fun, produced a warning given it lies on a day that doesn’t exist in the accepted international calendar. In this case, we could safely mark it as valid, but the warning itself is a great example of Veridian’s extensive source data validation capabilities. During the process of ingesting e.g. METS/ALTO data into a Veridian collection, numerous validation checks are performed to help ensure the data is uniform and is as expected.

This newspaper issue also includes upside-down text that can make it tricky to read easily. However, the new Veridian viewer solves this issue, by allowing users to easily rotate the page image in order to read any upside-down text - whether the text’s orientation is inadvertent or not.

Veridian’s complete services for digitization projects
Most of our readers will know our vision at Veridian is to help libraries and cultural heritage institutions to plan, build and maintain rich online digital collections.

We provide a complete service, and enjoy starting at the planning stages with clients to ensure the right data is produced. This starts with collection scanning which we organize with local expert scanning partners, managing the process to ensure the correct specifications and output quality are adhered to.

Once scanned, we help convert your digital images into a more comprehensive digital format, the industry standard METS/ALTO.

Veridian Software is the online platform that makes collections accessible to users, with an interface unique to your brand/organization. We also offer robust hosting features to archive your collection safely.
