Derby, United Kingdom – Derby based Soutron have developed a Combined Library and Archive Management Solution for the Wiener Library who host the most extensive collection of archives from the Holocaust and Nazi era in the UK.
Since 1933, the Wiener Library have been collecting material related to the Holocaust and now house over 17,000 photographs, 70,000 books and 2,000 document collections.
By working closely with the Wiener Library, Soutron was able to develop an innovative, flexible and configurable solution. "Working closely with our clients is of the upmost importance to help us understand their needs and requirements. It has been an absolute pleasure to collaborate with Kat and the whole team at The Weiner Library which has resulted in us here at Soutron developing a cutting edge online solution", says Graham Partridge, Client Services Director at Soutron.
Each day the library answers historical enquiries from those who are seeking information about particular books, documents or photographs that reside within the Wiener Library's collection.
Kat Hübschmann, Head of Collections at the Wiener Library, says "It bridges the gap for both the public and scholars to access, it has made a big difference in how we manage our documents now that we are all connected and with a seamless flow from our site to the portal with end users not realising just how amazing it is". Jessica Green, Digital Curator at the Wiener Library, goes on to add, "This is one of our greatest achievements to date".
Soutron is already developing stage two with a request facility where users can book to view documents, which is beneficial both for the Wiener Library and their visitors.
