Congregational Library & Archive
The Digital Ark (TDAC) is the digital preservation services provider of choice for the Congregational Library & Archive (CLA). CLA selected TDAC based upon its extensive experience and excellent track record with digitization projects for special collections requiring expertise in their sensitive care and handling. On an ongoing basis, TDAC provides pick up and delivery of these historic collections at CLA in Boston in order to undertake the digital image capture services at its studios in Providence. After processing the digital deliverables according to CLA's technical specifications including TIFFs, JPEGs and PDFs, a thorough quality control process is completed, and if unknown conservation issues are identified, a report detailing these is also provided. CLA utilizes the high-resolution images as archival master files, and integrates the web-resolution images in their online digital repository(ies) for access and research.
