"It was important for us to find a platform that could showcase the diverse range of content we hold in a way that is easily searchable, makes the most of the rich material and is easy for our team to maintain and update. Quartex allows us to do all of that."
 
Ashley Todd-Diaz, Assistant University Librarian for Special Collections & University Archives, Towson University

 

Your library’s digitized materials and special collections are a unique resource that should be engaging, accessible, and always available to the many user groups within your community, whether leadership, faculty, students, or private researchers.

Showcase your digitized collections in a way that unlocks their full research value and promotes user experience:

  • Engage your user community with visually dynamic digital collections sites
  • Test the power of HTR Transcription to enhance site search in a standalone collection that majors on manuscript content
  • Unite institutional archives and special collections in one purpose-built platform
  • Collaborate across campus to uncover and showcase archival collections with untapped research potential
  • Ease users into collections through individually curated digital exhibits
  • Enable users to bookmark assets for easy reference with My Account
  • Promote discovery and access with powerful search and display features
