My library's digitization project

Hopefully I'm not getting too self-promotional here! I wanted to share my library's digitization project, which I'm responsible for. We partnered with a local historical society to digitize a collection of materials about the founder of the town of Paris, and used that as the basis for a project about the history of the town in general. Some of the items were digitized using a flatbed scanner, while others were done using an incredibly MacGuyvered, super simplistic cradle and a Canon PowerShot G10 camera. (We're looking to upgrade from that to a proper self-made one for our next project, which is why I've been posting here.)

When it comes to digitizing materials and putting them online in an open way, you couldn't be self-promotional enough. Nice work.
