By connecting all content through descriptive data (metadata) Recollect brings information to the surface more intuitively by creating a virtual breadcrumb trail through your collection. As a smart Collection Management System you can manage all of your data in one place, allowing better, simpler management and reporting. Integrated with search engine optimisation (SEO) techniques and tools, your Recollect site features high in search results making your content easier for users to find on the internet.
Access means being able to view all types of content in one platform, allowing users to easily explore the connections between different types of content. It is more than being able to view a thumbnail, Recollect ensures that content is accessible to the user in as much detail as you choose. Documents are OCR’d on ingest, making the content searchable; images can be stored and viewed at maximum resolutions using pan and zoom tools or downloaded in a size that makes sense; audio and video content can be bookmarked and tagged to make information searchable and easier to access. 3D image files can be seen and manipulated to allow users to see all the detail.
Communities and stakeholders hold knowledge and content that can enrich your collections when contributions are managed simply and effectively. Recollect provides many tools that enable users to share their knowledge and discoveries with their peers and to provide contributions to collections. From recollections, tagging content, providing suggested corrections to providing new items of content or knowledge, Recollect enables a carefully moderated environment that ensures owners retain integrity in their collections, while their communities engage!
With a rich graphical user interfaces and flexible configuration, Recollect simplifies and streamlines the management of collections across many locations. From accessioning, arrangement and description, conservation, stock taking, loan management and disposal, Recollect ensures that you can efficiently manage your collections.
Recollect was designed with digital preservation principles at its core from the beginning – with the Recollect Enterprise – Digital Preservation add on module your digital files are carefully archived, monitored and migrated when necessary while access files are made available to users.
