In the late winter of 2006, BCIT hired Andornot Consulting to develop an online database of their aircraft maintenance training collection
. The Aircraft Maintenance Training: The First Fifty Years is a multi-media collection. The collection includes audio and video clips of interviews conducted with retirees, PDF's of curriculum from the early years of aviation maintenance training, newspaper clippings and more than 100 photographs.
This image archive collection uses Andornot's WPDK
system to automatically generate thumbnails of scanned photographs.
Later that spring, BCIT re-used the WPDK and ImageHandler system to develop their Archives and Special Collections repository
