Corbis Case Study
“The Bettmann Archive contains 11 million images … We were challenged with preserving the collection and providing access to it. The partnership that was created with Iron Mountain enables us to achieve that.”
-Ann Hartman, Manager of Library and Records Management, Corbis
The Bettmann Archive contains some of the world’s most recognizable photographic images – from Marilyn Monroe to Rosa Parks to a work crew perched on a girder above New York City. When Corbis Images acquired the Bettmann Archive in 1995, the challenge was to provide access for Corbis’ client base to this historic trove of images. Working with Iron Mountain, Corbis was able to manage the digitizing and archiving efforts for this massive collection and provide worldwide access to this rich legacy of historically significant visual images.
