Blue Robin's Digital Archive Search Engine (DASE) provides a means for the recovery of history from old newspapers to digital content. "We believe that vast amounts of incredible and valuable news content exist in huge analog archives, but not much of that content has any significant value if not presented in a usable platform. With our archive engine, we want to create a dynamic composition of a complete historical library extending to the latest minute in time" explains Hadi Shavarini.
"We are pleased to be able to continue our collaboration with the Wellesley Public Library to enhance the Website and its functionality to better serve the community.
