Digitization blog

Post by Misty » 30 Jun 2010, 11:25

I wanted to let people know I've started up a digitization blog at http://www.mistydemeo.com. I'm focusing on scanning/digitization from an archives perspective, covering some material I've been talking about here on the forums as well as other things. I have a few posts up right now, and I'm going to be updating pretty regularly. Big thanks to Dan for helping me get set up!

Misty: Is there somewhere on your blog that I can see some images of your work? Or is most of it copyrighted and you can't post it? I need to get some some web links to a guy who I'll be building a scanner for, but he wants to be reassured that he will be able to get professional work without to much redundant editing work.
BTW, I saw the pics in your google books thread, but I'm looking more for raw photos to kinda get an idea of how much editing will be involved.
Much obliged!

Sure, let me know more specifically what you need and I can pop you some samples. There are lots of end results at the County of Brant Public Library Digital Collections, but it sounds like you're looking for more of a before-and-after processing type of thing?
