9 April 2015: Civica, a leader in specialist systems and business process services that help organisations to transform the way they work, is pleased to be supporting the 19th SEAPAVAA conference to be hosted in Singapore by the Asian Film Archive in partnership with the National Library Board.
"Over the past few years our Spydus Library Management System has evolved significantly and rapidly to incorporate heritage and historical artefacts," said Marc Nolan, Managing Director. "The importance of presenting and preserving historical items, both physical and digital, was an unresolved issue for libraries for many years, and as a result we have developed an internationally recognised archival and heritage collections product to international standards with digital asset management and discovery capabilities."
Civica's presence in the archival solutions field dates back to 1987 when Civca's first archival product was released. In 2010 it was updated to align with the ISAD(G) archival standard, and in 2013 was integrated as a core module in the Spydus suite of products including library management, archives and heritage management, digital asset management, and discovery solution. Since its integration into Spydus, the take up has been popular and is now used by a wide range of organisations to present a wide range of heritage resources. The types of organisation range from libraries, schools, to heritage societies and government organisations.
In addition to a modern product for knowledge organisations and archives, Civica's strong presence in South East Asia means local support, including a commitment to customer consultation for product development.
Civica looks forward to being a sponsor for the upcoming conference and to support the development of audiovisual archiving in South East Asia.
"SEAPAVAA and the Asian Film Archive are glad for Civica's support and participation in the conference," said Karen Chan, Executive Director Asian Film Archive. "Archiving audiovisual objects has become an important element of preserving our cultural heritage. Innovative products and services help promote our work especially if users and audiences can be engaged in a meaningful way."
The 19th SEAPAVVA conference runs from 22 to 28 April at the Asian Film Archive, Singapore.
