Customized Solutions for Complex Digital Content Challenges

DCL has more than three decades of experience working with libraries, museums, and universities for all their digitization needs. Our focus on continuous collaboration with customers provides constant visibility into the progress of the project, a path to long-term value and future improvements, and the Return-On-Investment (ROI) you demand from your data conversion investment.

Specializing in XML, NLM, HTML, MARC & DAISY, DCL uses a combination of OCR, proprietary recognition, and correction technology. It’s part of our commitment to quality in automation, so that you can rely on spot-checking work, instead of consuming valuable resources on manual proofing.
