Why METS/ALTO Conversion?

The METS and ALTO have now been utilized for a number of years. Libraries, universities, newspaper publishers, and newspaper aggregators are familiar with these standards.

METS is a standard for encoding descriptive, administrative, and structural metadata regarding objects within a digital library, using XML. Though METS is excellent at describing the structure of a digital object, it is missing the ability to describe the content and layout of each piece of the digital object. So an extension to METS, called ALTO (Analyzed Layout and Text Object), is required for this purpose. The combination of METS and ALTO was originally developed by the METAe project, and later was adopted by the Library of Congress for its large-scale National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). Since then, METS/ALTO has been used in many newspaper digitization projects—both large and small—as well as a number of projects digitizing books and journals.

A typical METS/ALTO object encodes the complete logical and physical structure of a document (i.e., chapters, sections, articles, pages, etc., and their associated metadata), as well as the full-text content of each section of the document, and even the physical coordinates of every word in the document.

METS/ALTO and Web Interface Services

newspaper

METS/ALTO:

The combination of METS and ALTO (often written METS/ALTO) is the current industry standard for newspaper digitization used by hundreds of modern, large-scale newspaper digitization projects

Benefits: 

  • METS has the capability to support article segmentation, so articles, headlines, bylines, and other article-level metadata can be captured.
  • The combination of METS and ALTO captures very “rich” data, allowing the development of innovative discovery and delivery interfaces.
  • Both METS and ALTO are open XML standards — no proprietary software is required to read or transform the digitized objects.

Web Interface (Web based application):

 A web-based application is any application that uses a website as the interface (the ‘front-end’). Users access the application from any computer connected to the Internet using a standard browser, instead of using an application that has been installed on their local computer.

Business Advantage using Web Inteface

  • Cost effective development
  • Accessible anywhere
  • Easily customizable
  • Accessible for a range of devices
  • Improved interoperability
  • Easier installation and maintenance

  • Creating audit trails
  • Creating one source of truth for each document/item of data
  • Improving accessibility to information
  • Integrating business systems

The source of these advantages includes the following digitization initiatives, processes, and activities:

  • Document capture through scanning
  • Digital capture of information through use of eForms
  • Capture of metadata from both eForms and scanned documents to obviate the need for transcription and duplicate entry
  • Optical character recognition to obviate the need for entry of data into systems
  • Using workflow functionality to automate authorization processes and create audit trails
  • Version control
