Biblio-graph Publish is a tool to make books in the browser developed by Archival Consciousness in collaboration with Framer Framed.
We have seen websites disappear and years of accumulated content getting lost, or websites being published as a book to preserve the content. With Publish our aim is to rethink publishing from the perspective of archiving and long-term preservation.
Publish is a tool for editors and designers to collaborate in the same page and make hybrid books that can be a web page distributed as a url, a pdf for offline reading, or a high-res pdf for offset printing. In the near future it will be possible to export datasets and publishing as Linked Open Data.
This is a first release beta version of Publish, for cultural institutions and publishers.

Archival Consciousness was initiated by artist Mariana Lanari and graphic designer Remco van Bladel to collaborate with libraries and archives in cultural institutions. We work in close collaboration with archivists to implement methods and infrastructure to turn their collections into data. We are interested in the long term preservation and dissemination of physical archives, in connection with the digital archive. The digital component of archives, their databases, are the starting point of our work. We are developing a shared and community driven graph that acts as an interaction layer on top of the existing databases of libraries and archives. In this way, we bring linked-data aggregation to the application layer to facilitate discovery, browsing, and navigation through explorative features of graph algorithms.
