Turning the Pages™ 2.0 is an application that allows libraries and museums to put entire collections of books and single sheet items in a compelling 3D environment, with a suite of useful tools to aid understanding. It is available as a toolkit for institutions to build their own libraries, or as a service. Click here to find out more, or click here to see it in action.

We've also put together a showcase to highlight some of our recent work.

TTP 2.0 runs on Windows, Mac and Linux. Using the same technical back-end, the TTP content management system can also generate an accessible version as well as web and kiosk versions. We are committed to allowing you to reach as large an audience as possible, while retaining all the usability that visitors want.

Turning the Pages can run online or offline as a kiosk, be hosted by us, or by your IT department. We can customise the interface and add new features to get you the Turning the Pages you want. As well as a cost-effective solution, this allows libraries and museums to gain a visitor attraction in-house, whilst at the same time using the reach of the internet to provide maximum exposure to collections.

Turning the Pages has now been adopted by, amongst others: the British Library, the National Archives, the Royal Society, the National Library of Ireland, the Natural History Museum, the Zoological Society of London, English Heritage and the National Trust.

The Turning the Pages™ content management system allowing users to create and upload their own books.
