Our trusted docWorks Service. Now online for everyone.

We present docWorks SX, the express version of our trusted conversion service docWorks Service. For many years, docWorks Service has been
used worldwide by libraries that prefer to outsource their digitization and conversion work to a professional service provider. In these cases, the
library sends its scanned material to our docWorks Service team, which then processes the scans with the docWorks software, manually checks and corrects the recognized layout and OCR, and returns the fi nal METS/ALTO output (METS/ALTO is the standard format for digital libraries) to the library.

docWorks SX is a simplifi cation of this process. All data transfers are handled online, processing is entirely automated, and all project configurations and payment options are standardized. The library simply uploads its scanned material via the docWorks SX website, selects the desired conversion mode and pays with pre-purchased credit points. The material is then automatically converted by our docWorks system and the library receives a download link to the fi nal METS/ALTO output.

One, two, three, four, done.

docWorks SX follows a simple, four-step process. First you upload your scans via the docWorks SX website. Second, you specify what type of
publication you want to convert: book, newspaper (including NDNP) or serial. Third, the scans are automatically loaded into our docWorks system, where a layout analysis and high quality article-level OCR is performed and the overall structure of the publication is captured. (In the case of the NDNP profi le, these steps are manually supported and optimized by our experienced docWorks Service team and complemented by an additional cropping step.) Fourth, you download the fi nal METS ALTO output.

Upload
Set up your account, purchase credit points
and upload the scans you want to have converted.

Configuration
Specify which conversion mode you need: book,
newspaper (including NDNP) or serial.

Conversion
Sit back and let docWorks convert your scans into metadata-rich METS/ ALTO output.

Download
Download the METS/ ALTO output, which also
contains your original scans and a PDF version.

No fixed costs

With docWorks SX, there are no initial purchase costs or running license fees. You only pay for pages you actually process. The price per page
depends on which conversion mode you choose, as books and newspapers are of different complexity and therefore require different conversion efforts. To make it even easier for you to get started with docWorks SX, you will receive 300 free credit points as a welcome gift!
