Metamorfoze in theory
Strict requirements for digitization, scanning, and verification go hand in hand with the Metamorfoze programme. The Dutch Royal Library ensures the highest possible quality in collaboration with the executing party. GMS meets the highest quality requirements through the use of colour cards, 1:1 checks, and special targets.
Metamorfoze in practice
GMS has been involved with the Metamorfoze programme from very start. To maintain the quality of the digitization, GMS developed special internal procedures. According to an employee of the Royal Library: “GMS is an organisation that is very capable of digitizing according to the requirements of Metamorfoze.” Even now, GMS is currently digitizing archives in several Metamorfoze projects.
Experience is very important when digitizing at a Metamorfoze level of quality. During the past years, GMS has digitized various collections according to Metamorfoze requirements. Thanks to the experience and the optimization of the digitization process, GMS can currently perform routine digitizations in accordance with the Metamorfoze Light image quality criteria. GMS is a proven specialist in the digitization of these collections according to this quality level.
