Quire: Getty’s Open-Source Digital Publishing Tool
Developed by Getty, Quire is a multiformat, digital publishing tool optimized for high-quality, visual publishing. It is designed to ensure that digital books are not only as beautiful and object-like as print books but are equally as enduring. Quire uses static site generation to ensure the longevity and sustainability of publication content. It also increases publication discoverability through its unique multiformat output capabilities. Quire was developed with a built-in understanding of high-quality scholarly publishing and best practices. Elements like high-resolution images, linkable footnotes, pop-up references, and page-level citations are baked into Quire's core code.
Originally developed as a solution to Getty's open access publishing needs, Quire quickly gained the attention of other organizations within the fields of digital humanities, arts, and academia. Quire is currently available for free use upon request. In Spring 2022, Quire will officially be launched as an open-source publishing tool, enabling others to leverage Getty's work and publish critical digital scholarship online, at a low cost, and with little ongoing maintenance.
