This Month: Scanning, Digitizing, Preserving


Scanning for Digitization Projects
You can just slap pages onto a scanner or you can capture every pixel in all its glory. Think about it: You can make better archival images if you really understand what scan drivers do, how scanners use light, and how to choose file formats. This primer can help you become a super scanner.

Weaving the Past into the Present by Digitizing Local History
The people in charge of a project called Digital Past have managed to get more than 30 organizations to weave their resources together to form a colorful Web site of Illinois history. Contributors started digitizing back in the ’90s before scanning was standardized, and they’ve managed to change along with the times ever since.

On Your Mark, Get Set, Go! Overview of a Digital Project from Start to Finish
Rome wasn’t built in a day, nor was an online collection of 105 years’ worth of association publications. But a team of Georgia librarians had the stamina for a marathon project that lasted 2 years. Members even built their own digital library system along the way, and so far, the finished site has logged more than 65,000 unique visits.
