We actively pursue the origin and ownership of each and every
publication we feature. Some publications, publishers, and
owners, are easier to identify origin and ownership than others. This can be because of the
publication's age, changes of ownership, reverting to a business or
family trust, or another reason, such as the format of the publication.
We will ALWAYS respect copyright, and if evidence of ownership is
proven, we will either engage in a royalty agreement with the copyright
holder, or remove the publication from our archives.

JWB Collection (In curation)

on glass plate (above), and as colour and monochrome negatives and
transparencies, from Quarter Plate down to half-frame size. With a date
range from 1911 to the present day, and containing social, landscape and
architectural images of the UK and Europe, the intelligen remit is to
preserve all 5 photographers works, disseminate and evaluate the
condition and content, then catalogue and index to a taxonomy structure.
Finally, the collection is to be commercialised with content to be
published, and images licenced for use by the public as well as
historical, learned, or other institutions.

In The Past ....
Specialist Video System
Developed a PC-based
sub-sea inspection video retrieval system, for engineers
to view specialist sub-sea pipeline
inspection videos (with simultaneous views of port, starboard and
central camera footage). This was coupled with KP survey data extracted
from the survey system and migrated into an MS Access database, with
displayed adjacent to the footage.
Development of an integrated
system for the storage, retrieval and presentation of document and
image sets into an online/intranet page-turning environment.
of intelligen is a former member of an international microfilm
standards committee. This required familiarity with
British Standards (BS), International Standards Organisation (ISO), and
U.S. military (MIL) standards for the microfilm archiving of data and
Hollerith Data Conversion
Conversion of 650,000 aperture cards (with 80-column
punched Hollerith data,) from microfilm aperture cards
into Excel, ready for import into an EDMS.
Mainframe Data Conversion
Assistant Project Manager on the supervision of the conversion of 8,000,000 IBM
mainframe records, into a format suitable for import
into a client-server based EDMS, including validation
and verification and data cleansing.

Microfilm Titling Systems
- Created a titling
system for use in the microfilm publishing of step-and-repeat microfiche,
techniques and contact printing of text directly onto film.
Auto-exposure By-pass System
Invention of a camera
auto-exposure by-pass system to allow planetary microfilm cameras to
capture consistently exposed images onto colour microfilm.
Tag-based Engineers Access System
intelligen designed and implemented a
browser-based system to enable a FTSE 250 oil and gas company to have
their engineering tag-data more accessible to
engineers, by allowing a drill-down approach
to get equipment data using a taxonomy.
Re-publishing via ThemePrint
ThemePrint is an exciting new service from intelligen, where we make out-of-print periodicals and other printed ephemera
available once more, and sometimes for the first time. We can also publish 'never-published' items, or
other more obscure titles from organisations and/or individuals.
In the past, much of this type of
re-publishing would have been produced and distributed on microfilm. (Micropublishing)
As most of you will know, Microfilm is OK for libraries still using the
equipment, or those individuals lucky enough to have access to microfilm
readers, or even own one, (e.g. Genealogists,) but these days, microfilm is not so
handy for the general public.
How Does It Work?
scour the globe both online and through our contacts, looking for
potential content. Currently we are cataloguing and grading the material
we have. This is considerable, and likely to run to around 50,000 items
with millions of pages. We then process the content into an appropriate
format, before publishing online to our ThemePrint site on Issuu. See
the progress at:
Once we have a certain level of content
in preview format, we will provide access to the full publication in PDF
format, as well as the opportunity to produce a high-quality one-off or
multi-copy print. A subscription service ranging from £0.99p per month
will be available through PayPal, and the rate will vary depending on
the volume and genre.
Content Conversion Grant
A grant to have your content made available online may be available in
situations where you have hard copy, or digital files of specialist
content, and you want that content re-published. If you have content in
any format, and on any subject, which you think we may be interested in
re-publishing, please email details to:
