DCL is the first agent to be selected for this critical initiative. DCL's services for the LOC include

  • Facilitating the process of depositing eSerials with the U.S. Copyright Office

  • Assuring compliance and acceptability of eSerials

  • Providing conversion services as needed to convert documents to LOC-preferred formats, including NISO JATS 1.2, ePUB, and more

 DCL has met all of the Library’s specifications including extensive expertise with the PubMed Central Journal Article Tag Suite (JATS) specification for institutional repositories, commercial publishers, and association publishers. DCL also supports ongoing and back-file conversion to the NLM book DTD and can act as an agent for depositing ebooks.​​

DCL transforms manuscripts into high-quality ebooks for all devices. We specialize in both fixed layout and reflowable text. As the mobile marketplace continues to expand and create new opportunities in technology, DCL continues to adapt to these changes to develop and produce the best eBook conversions possible.

Accessibility Starts With Structure

Accessibility is an approach to content and design that makes information available in alternative formats for people with vision impairment. DCL creates Section 508-compliant PDFs from both legacy PDF and image files. DCL’s expertise in analyzing content, providing compliance audits, and remediating, assures you a smooth process that makes content accessible to all.
