Based in Falls Church, Va., with more than 4,000 employees in 20 offices around the world, Aptara Corporation is a select data conversion vendor that works closely with academic and other institutions to convert paper, microfilm, and early generation electronic content for other uses. Aptara provided the Brown project with expert content conversion consultation, keyboarding, and XML coding as well as access to various content management products and services.
Readex Corporation is a division of Newsbank, and has initiated several digital research collections, most notably, with the American Antiquarian Society, a digital version of Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800; Early American Imprints Series II: Shaw-Shoemaker; 1801-1819; and Early American Newspapers, Series 1, 1690-1876. It is also responsible for creating the Archive of Americana, a digital collection of Afro-Americana imprints, American broadsides and ephemera, and other materials.
Readex has generously allowed the Brown project access to these collections, and Brown's political pamphlets in particular, so editors could complete the Brown archive and annotate Brown's works with reference to historical publications.
