Digital Assets Repository
A Digital Assets Repository (DAR) is used to store all types of digital material and provides public access to the digitized collections through web-based search and browsing facilities.
The Digital Assets Repository (DAR) was developed by the International School of Information Science (ISIS) to create and maintain the Library digital collections. DAR acts as a repository for all types of digital material (obtained from the Library or acquired from other sources), preserving and archiving digital media, and providing public access to digitized collections through web-based search and browsing facilities. A digitization laboratory was built for this purpose at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. The lab is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies for digitizing different types of material including slides in multiple formats, negatives, books, manuscripts, pictures and maps, audio, and video.
