We actively pursue the origin and ownership of each and every publication we feature
. Some publications, publishers, and owners, are easier to identify origin and ownership than others. This can be because of the publication's age, changes of ownership, reverting to a business or family trust, or another reason, such as the format of the publication.

We will ALWAYS respect copyright, and if evidence of ownership is proven, we will either engage in a royalty agreement with the copyright holder, or remove the publication from our archives.

Genres Include:
Business - Science - Science Fiction - Science Fantasy - Horror - Fantasy - Love Stories - Movies - Humour - Pulp-fiction (the genre - not the film) - Product & Store Catalogues - Specialist Catalogues - Railways and Steam - Photography - Computing - Gaming and Consoles - Detective - Wild West - Mysteries - History - Art - Adult - Adult Retro,

Finally, the collection is to be commercialised with content to be published, and images licenced for use by the public as well as historical, learned, or other institutions.

In The Past ....
intelligen has:

Specialist Video System
Developed a PC-based sub-sea inspection video retrieval system, for engineers to view specialist sub-sea pipeline inspection videos (with simultaneous views of port, starboard and central camera footage). This was coupled with KP survey data extracted from the survey system and migrated into an MS Access database, with the data displayed adjacent to the footage.

Development of an integrated system for the storage, retrieval and presentation of document and image sets into an online/intranet page-turning environment.

ISO Standards
The principal of intelligen is a former member of an international microfilm standards committee. This required familiarity with British Standards (BS), International Standards Organisation (ISO), and U.S. military (MIL) standards for the microfilm archiving of data and documents.

Hollerith Data Conversion
Conversion of 650,000 aperture cards (with 80-column punched Hollerith data,) from microfilm aperture cards into Excel, ready for import into an EDMS.

Mainframe Data Conversion
Assistant Project Manager on the supervision of the conversion of 8,000,000 IBM mainframe records, into a format suitable for import into a client-server based EDMS, including validation and verification and data cleansing.

System Integration
Various projects including:
- Linking an IBM mainframe-based SAP system with a contemporary EDMS
- Maximo > Documentum
- Documentum > Maximo
- SharePoint > BMS (Business Management System)

Migration Projects
- System to System (e.g. Assai to Sharepoint)
- Optical disk to HDD
- Content from HDD to microfilm
- Microfilm to digital
- Digital to microfilm

Microfilm Titling Systems
- Created a titling system for use in the microfilm publishing of step-and-repeat microfiche, which used lithographic film techniques and contact printing of text directly onto film.

Auto-exposure By-pass System
Invention of a camera auto-exposure by-pass system to allow planetary microfilm cameras to capture consistently exposed images onto colour microfilm.

Tag-based Engineers Access System
intelligen designed and implemented a browser-based system to enable a FTSE 250 oil and gas company to have their engineering tag-data more accessible to engineers, by allowing a drill-down approach to get equipment data using a taxonomy.

Re-publishing via ThemePrint
ThemePrint is an exciting new service from intelligen, where we make out-of-print periodicals and other printed ephemera available once more, and sometimes for the first time. We can also publish 'never-published' items, or other more obscure titles from organisations and/or individuals.

In the past, much of this type of re-publishing would have been produced and distributed on microfilm. (Micropublishing) As most of you will know, Microfilm is OK for libraries still using the equipment, or those individuals lucky enough to have access to microfilm readers, or even own one, (e.g. Genealogists,) but these days, microfilm is not so handy for the general public.

How Does It Work?
Intelligen scour the globe both online and through our contacts, looking for potential content. Currently we are cataloguing and grading the material we have. This is considerable, and likely to run to around 50,000 items with millions of pages. We then process the content into an appropriate format, before publishing online to our ThemePrint site on Issuu. See the progress at:

Once we have a certain level of content in preview format, we will provide access to the full publication in PDF format, as well as the opportunity to produce a high-quality one-off or multi-copy print. A subscription service ranging from 0.99p per month will be available through PayPal, and the rate will vary depending on the volume and genre.

Content Conversion Grant
A grant to have your content made available online may be available in situations where you have hard copy, or digital files of specialist content, and you want that content re-published. If you have content in any format, and on any subject, which you think we may be interested in re-publishing, please email details to:
