The Specifile Digital Library is an online product librarian for subscribers in the construction and building industries.
As brochures are received from manufacturers, they are processed, indexed, categorised and keyword linked. Then they are uploaded to the Digital Library. Not a working day goes by that a new or updated brochure is not added to the library.
Most building product manufacturers and suppliers will upload their brochures to their own websites. However, they will not normally do what the Specifile Digital Library does - each and every brochure we receive is indexed according to: brochure title, supplier name, building product category/ies, a variety of relevant keywords and tags. Keywords and tags include common building product search phrases, building product classifications, trade names and applications. And, while Google can search through PDFs to find some of this information, it will not find all – we use trained classification staff to index and categorise the brochures.
- 2 000 + PDF brochures, meaning you can copy and paste information into your working documents (over 20 000 pages of information from 215 companies)
- Advanced search functionality – which makes it very easy to find what you are looking for.
- You can browse using the same indexing system used in the Specifile and Archi-Text libraries.
- Personalised log-in details for 10 users per subscribing office.
- Weekly newsletter informing you of a selection of the new brochures added.
All of this is available at a rate of R125 pm (plus VAT) per subscribing office! Taking into account the time saved searching through various websites, we believe you will agree that this is phenomenal value for money. A service that will definitely make your life easier.
