Farewell 2018: Highlights from this year
Coming up: Our plans for 2019
From the Veridian team: Happy holidays

Hello friend of Veridian,

It's nearly holiday time! Read our final newsletter for the year.
2018 It has been a busy and exciting year for the Veridian team.

It's been a privilege to partner with prestigious libraries, universities and cultural heritage institutions from all over the world. Working from our office in New Zealand it's wonderful seeing all the hard work come to fruition as new digital collections launch.  We love watching visitor numbers grow as online communities discover, use and share each new collection.  

Here are a few of our highlights of 2018

  • The launch of the Swiss National Library Newspaper Archive. We created a new presentation and access infrastructure for digitized Swiss press containing more than 3,500,000 pages.
  • Working with the American Foundation for the Blind on the launch of the Helen Keller Archive - the world's largest repository of material relating to Helen Keller. Best of all, it's fully accessible to visitors who are blind, deaf, hard-of-hearing and deafblind.
  • Veridian was selected by the Office of the Secretary of State to provide online access to the Washington State Library Digital Newspaper collection. Watch this space for the launch date!
  • Upgrading a large number of Veridian collections to the new fully responsive Veridian User Interface with a clean and modern look.
  • Building some really interesting new collections of material in German, Japanese, and Arabic.
Coming up: Our plans for 2019
With a stack of interesting projects and ideas in the wings, 2019 is shaping up to be a big year for Veridian.

What we're looking forward to in 2019

  • Showing off the brand new Veridian website. We can't wait to share our new and improved website with you very soon!  
  • Embracing and driving change. We'll be adding new features like IIIF to ensure Veridian continues to be the very best newspaper collection presentation software available.
  • The launch of the Washington State Library Digital Newspaper Collection.
  • The launch of the Case Western Reserve University Digital Newspaper Collection.
Thanks for being part of the Veridian family in 2018, whether you are a customer, friend, business partner or simply a lover of digital collections and software!

Our office will be closed from Friday December 21st and we'll be back on Monday 7th January.

We hope you enjoy a relaxing break over the holidays and come back refreshed and ready for a great year ahead!

Very best wishes from the whole team here at Veridian,

Stefan, Michael, Jeffrey, Andrew, Richard, Pei, Shane and Miriam.
