Archives & Access: iBase at Tate

30th July 2015

Tate is using iBase software in its Archives & Access project, to help process a mammoth haul of artists’ materials, including diaries, letters, photographs and sketchbooks.

iBase at Tate

iBase has a long-standing relationship with Tate, where a combination of standard and bespoke software complements the workflow and strict processes of the photography department. With the inception of the Archives & Access project, a rigorous digital preservation requirement was incorporated to ensure that all processes comply with PREMIS guidelines. The result is a system which integrates with Tate’s collections management system, manages the very high resolution photographs and ensures, through strict auditing of process and in cooporation with Tate’s hyper-resilient storage facility, that each image is correctly preserved for generations to come.
