PA Photos and Documents is a statewide digitization service that utilizes the Islandora open source platform.
The service enables the storage and retrieval of digitized collections created by libraries and other organizations throughout Pennsylvania. The primary focus is historic, cultural, and other collections of interest to the citizens of Pennsylvania.
In cooperation with other Pennsylvania agencies, the Office of Commonwealth Libraries is working toward universal access to digitized Pennsylvania historical materials. Participation in this program is open to institutions that participate in POWER Library/Access Pennsylvania or partners with an institution that participates in POWER Library/Access Pennsylvania.
This project provides equipment and training to POWER Library participating institutions to support the digitization of materials held in libraries and by the residents of the communities they serve.
