At HistoryIT our mission is to save history. All of our products and services are designed with the intent to democratize our collective history by making the public historical record just as accessible, searchable and meaningful to a fifth grader as to a professional researcher. In order to accomplish this goal we must transform physical holdings into an accessible digital format. This involves 1) creating true digital preservation quality files that will hold up over time as image and web technologies change; and 2) cataloging and tagging EVERY SINGLE ITEM in a digital collection so that people can find them easily. Until now, achieving both of these tasks has been expensive or time consuming, which has significantly limited the amount of history we can save. HistoryIT’s PastPort™ changes everything.
