Reach out and empower your community or stakeholders with the Recollect cloud-based platform. Build your identity, enrich your collections, capture and manage new content, as well as discuss new ideas from anywhere in the world.
“Recollect exceeded our requirements, being highly customisable, easily Google indexed, mobile friendly, using persistent identifiers and supporting a variety of media. It excels at community engagement through user contributions, tagging, curating favourites, commenting and social media integration.”
Metadata and contextual information are the core of any collection, they describe the relationships and history that gives life to the physical (or digital) assets in the collection. Each Recollect project is configured using this kind of descriptive metadata which links your assets together, allowing for both structured and unstructured discoverability. Your community will be able to discover the collections online through whatever search method they choose – customised taxonomy menu or serendipitously.
Recollect generates unparalleled access to digital collections: it provides the ability to view all types of content, no matter their format, all within one platform, and it can be used on any device. Access is more than simply being able to view a thumbnail. Recollect ensured that content is accessible to the user in as much detail as possible. Images can be stored and viewed at full resolution or downloaded in a size that makes sense to the user.
Recollect enhances the quality of engagement the community will have with your collections. Recollect provides the tools needed to empower users to share their knowledge and discoveries with their peers, encouraging them to offer valuable contributions to the collection. Users can leave comments or recollections, tag assets with metadata or geo-tag locations, suggest corrections, and donate new items including digital assets or knowledge. Recollect is a carefully moderated environment that ensures owners retain the collections integrity as the online library community grows.
Recollect manages all the data in one place for simpler management and better activity reporting. With an image rich user interface and flexible configuration, Recollect simplifies and streamlines the management of collections. With the Archive and Collection Management add-on module, you can efficiently manage and monitor the archival activities of your collections – such as accessioning, arrangement and describing, conservation, stock taking, loan management and even disposal.
Recollect provides comprehensive preservation of the assets and collections. It allows you to protect and preserve the digital assets online for future generations. Digital records are saved onto the Cloud which means they are secure and will never be lost. Creating an online platform for the collections guarantees that important metadata, knowledge and relationships are visible to the public, while ultimately providing a form of digital preservation to secure accessibility far into the future.
