  • automation of all key functions (cataloging, OPAC, borrowing, management of magazines, orders, inventory, etc.) with integrated Systems (V-Smart, Advance, Koha).
  • in compliance with international standards, systematic recording of their available material (cataloging, enrichment with digital data, data migration, auditing and certification of collections, etc.) implementing (AACR2 rev., ISBD's, MARC formats, Dewey classification, etc.) standards.
  • dynamic linkage with international sources and databases via specialized software, metasearch, Open Url, Discovery, etc. (MuseSearch suite, VuFind/Catmining, V-Spaces, V-Link, OCLC solutions, etc.).
  • data security and operating procedures facilitation, such as borrowing, inventory, returning of material regardless of library’s opening hours, by implementing solutions proposed by the new RFiD technology for libraries.
  • integrated library shelving systems in aesthetic and functional design for the physical placement and arrangement of material (Borgeuad Bibliotheques) as well as more utilitarian furniture. High quality equipment for labeling of the material by the internationally recognized in this field German company Neschen, specific for libraries and sensitive products.
Discovery
intergrated-lib

Ο διαρκώς αυξανόμενος όγκος βιβλιογραφικών δεδομένων και επιστημονικών δημοσιευμάτων, σε συνδυασμό με την ποικιλομορφία της ηλεκτρονικής φόρμας αυτών, δημιούργησε σύντομα την ανάγκη εργαλείων οριζόντιας αναζήτησης όλων των διαθέσιμων ηλεκτρονικών πηγών του διαδικτύου.
Για τον επιστημονικό κόσμο η ανάγκη αυτή είναι κάτι που υπερβαίνει το θόρυβο της πληροφορίας που παρέχει μια αναζήτηση Google. Αποσκοπώντας στην ικανοποίηση της απαίτησης για ακριβέστερη και στοχευμένη πληροφόρηση δημιουργήθηκαν μηχανές αναζήτησης που έχουν τη δυνατότητα έρευνας σε πολλές πηγές ταυτόχρονα (federated search, metasearch) ή σε διευρυμένα ευρετήρια τα οποία δημιουργούνται δευτερογενώς μέσω ευρετηρίασης των περιγραφικών μεταδεδομένων (discovery).
H τελευταία εξέλιξη της τεχνολογίας στον τομέα αυτό είναι η γνωσιακή αναζήτηση (conceptual discovery) με αξιοποίηση λογικών σημασιολογικών διασυνδέσεων που καταγράφονται και εξάγονται από τεράστιες Βάσεις επιστημονικών δεδομένων (π.χ. το Yewno αναλύει και αξιοποιεί μια Βάση περισσότερων από 120 εκατ. τεκμηρίων).

Η ELiDOC, με τα προϊόντα που προσφέρει και υποστηρίζει, δίνει στις βιβλιοθήκες τη δυνατότητα αξιοποίησης των τεχνολογιών διευρυμένης αναζήτησης, (discovery systems) προσφέροντας λύσεις που ικανοποιούν τις πιο απαιτητικές ανάγκες.

Repositories
institutional-lib

By using the terms "Repositories/Depositories" "Digital Archives" "Digital Libraries" we mean any form of organized digital collection which combines a detailed, searchable by metadata description of the Object and linking of this description to digital content available to the user through the appropriate browser. The content recorded, where relevant, in various formats (image, digital file, text file) -any file that has processed as OCR, video, audio, etc.-.  ELiDOC operates by providing automation solutions, digitalization services, processing of digital copies and documentation in the following categories:

  • Institutional Repository - This Repository is related with the student's essays of an Academic Foundation, sorted by category (Thesis, Master, PhD, or other). Essays are recorded into repository in digital format (PDF, image, text file that has processed as OCR, etc.)  and  accompanied by descriptive metadata  and thematic classification (authority lists, structured indexes, ontologies, etc.). Access is open or restricted and distributed under international standards (e.g. Creative Commons). ELiDOC uses internationally recognized open source software for Institutional Repositories development, such as DSpace and e-Prints, though Repositories of this type, can be supported by V-Smart software. Documenting is conducted in Dublin Core format or Qualified Dublin Core format, as well as with Greek heal-Meta Proposal.  Digitalization follows best established practices, in analogy with the material type. Institutional Repositories should be open to local and international accumulators (aggregators) and this is achieved through the OAI-PMH protocol.
  • Research Repository - This Repository is related with the research output of Academic Institutes or Research Entities, Institutes, etc. and intends to record and promote their research activities and research results. The structure of Research repository is more complex than that of the Institutional and is described by the CERIF standard. According to complexity and the level of compliance with CERIF, ELiDOC uses DSpace and Bibapp open source software for automation, management and visibility of a Research repository.
  • Cultural Repository - Digital Library - A Cultural Repository can include a variety of material with cultural qualification, contemporary or from past periods (historical archives,  photography collections, publications material, combo material of events-speeches/photos/video-, etc.). This material is appropriately digitalized, copyright marked (watermark, license) and properly documented based on the more akin standard  (Dublin Core, CIDOC-CRM, Marc, etc.). As in previous repositories, the material must be open to international and domestic accumulators (Europeanna, ΕΚΤ, etc.) via protocols (OAI-PMH, Z39.50, etc.). Elidoc backing solutions based on open source software such as DSpace, OMEKA, or commercial software like V-Smart, Luna Insight and  AdLib.
CMS Portals

Vertical Information Portals (VIPs) provide news, editorial content, digital publications, and e-commerce capabilities. In contrast to traditional vertical portals, VIPs also provide dynamic multimedia applications including social networking, video posting, and blogging.

  • Drupal, WordPress - The most popular content management systems.
    Designed to support the management of the content of Web pages that includes text and embedded graphics, photos, video, audio, maps, and program code (e.g., for applications) that displays content or interacts with the user.
  • Grav - The target groups of Grav are organizations, companies and individuals who need a small to medium-sized websites.
    As a flat file Content Management System, in contrast to other CMS software that tend to use MySQL databases, uses XML files to store the content.
Consumables
institutional-lib

In its long collaboration with libraries, the company perceived the need to cover all of their requirements in total and not only in the field of automation.

So the company decided to provide a range of high quality products related mainly to library furnitures (bookshelves, rolling shelving systems, complementary furnishing items etc.) by representing the French Borgeaud Bibliotheques and the French-German TIXIT companies.

In the consumables sector, ELiDOC provides products of the German company Neschen (transparent protective antacids, labels, etc.) as well as of the English company PEL (mainly boxes with specific standards for storing and safeguarding sensitive material).
