About the Project


The Digitization committee set the standards for the digitization and preservation of the scrapbook's images. To accomplish this, the committee researched best practices for scanning, file naming conventions, and image editing, which were communicated to the team in a procedures manual.  Secondary tasks of the committee included creating a procedure for the transcription of hand-written text and the use of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for scrapbook materials. The Digitization committee worked in conjunction with the Preservation, Descriptive Metadata, Quality Control, and Database committees throughout the project.

Committee members: Jane Polson, Watinee Sae-Lim, Jennifer Skidgel
