Pictoscope is a visual discovery service that generates compelling image content capable of instantly improving access to digitized books, artwork and online collections.
The power of Pictoscsope is its visual environment where historic illuminations, illustrations and other generated imagery become important entry points to new discoveries. An innovative thumbnail imaging index provides patrons a new window onto a amazing array of digital content.
In today's online environment, less popular but essential content is often lost, hidden in the depths of the Deep Web. Pictoscope's visual discovery index has the power to help patrons uncover indispensable online collections. A simple click plugs them directly into important openly available collections and content that otherwise remain overlooked and underused.
Pictoscope is excited to support the mission of libraries and other nonprofit institutions. Your membership and metadata contributions will help improve access to essential primary resources that deserve to remain open and freely accessible. This exciting improvement in access links together openly available initiatives and content, reducing institutional reliance on more costly subscription resources and connecting researchers to a new world of hidden resources.
Pictoscope is pleased to announce the premier of our BookView and OpenView library products. Pictoscope visual discovery services allow patrons to see online collections in a new way. Come by our table at ALA and let us show you how Pictoscope is opening a new window on openly accessible content and collections.
