RFQQ 16-03 Washington Digital Newspapers Metadata Processing

The Washington State Secretary of State, Washington State Library, hereafter called "OSOS,” is initiating a project which will enable OSOS to continue the growth of the Washington Digital Newspaper collection at the Washington State Library (WSL). OSOS is beginning a new project digitizing up to 50,000 pages newspaper page images per year. For this project OSOS will begin with publications of historical and cultural significance produced within Washington State. Some publications will fall within the range of free use through public domain and others will be cleared for digitization by OSOS with copyright permissions granted through the publisher. OSOS seeks a vendor to assist in the process of OCR and metadata creation and an awareness of the Library of Congress’ National Digital Newspaper Program Technical standards. OSOS is a graduate of the NDNP and an active member of the post-standards committee working to develop broader standards beyond the Library of Congress program. These standards will be used for the current program. The contract awarded from this RFQQ will be for one year with options to extend for two one year periods if the project goes well.

OSOS will provide raw TIFFs images created to NDNP standards as an uncompressed, 8-bit grayscale, 300-400 dpi, which will need to be cropped & de-skewed; issue structure, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) conversion (page level), METS/ALTO data standards applied; and have dates/page number metadata added. This image metadata can be created either by A) licensing the processing software to OSOS so that metadata application steps can be done in-house by OSOS staff with product support from chosen vendor or B) receiving raw TIFF images at the vendor’s facility where the images will then have the same processing steps done and verified for OSOS.

The due date for responses is August 24, 2015. Contracts will be from date of execution anticipated to be on or about September 24, 2015 through August 31, 2016 with an option for extensions of the contract for September 1, 2016 through August 31, 2017 for the first option year and September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018 for the second option year.
