Digitization and Preservation
We’ve digitally captured and catalogued millions of pages of rich content for clients around the world. Preserve, present — and even monetize — your assets through robust digitization and file conversion. Nearly any input format can be transformed to digital XML/HTML, PDF, or eBook.
Get to market faster with Apex. We move your authored manuscript through the full production cycle including copyediting, composition, metadata enhancement, and final prepress preparation including print-ready PDF creation and e-products like ePub, Kindle, and iBook.

“Partnering with Apex was key to providing our customers with excellent service and support. Apex’s effectiveness and knowledge fits right into HighWire’s business culture.”

“Apex has been a trusted service provider for JSTOR for over 15 years. They provide high quality, cost effective and well-managed support ranging from large scale and ongoing conversion services for our journals and books products to smaller scale but still important projects such as our Hebrew Journals collection which required new language and character system expertise to be combined with adherence to all our standard specifications. We depend upon Apex’s expertise, and our products are better as a result.”
John Kiplinger JSTOR
