A Busy Summer

Frontispiece from a recent project scanned at 400dpi (click for detail)

It’s been awhile since our last update to the blog. We’ve been heads-down with a lot of important digitization projects lately. About a month ago, we performed onsite scanning on a large job for a legal services company here in the Northeast. Currently, we have two large jobs in the shop. One is a 461 roll conversion of 16mm microfilm for a large utility customer in the Western US. This job includes Creekside Digital’s ultra high-quality film scanning, OCR, and PDF compression. At the same time, we’re running a 134 roll 35mm microfilmed newspaper project for a library system (also out west), which includes scanning, OCR, and creation of FullText indices to allow the library’s staff and patrons to keyword search all 134 rolls of film simultaneously. In between, of course, we’ve been running a variety of small jobs for folks all over the US and Canada: single rolls for individuals; orders which are a handful of rolls for engineering firms, hospitals, and churches; and plenty of fiche jobs for parts suppliers, school districts, and litigation service companies.

Very soon, microfiche orders will be accepted through our Small Order Form as well as rollfilm. That means that if you have a small number of sheets / jackets of microfiche (up to 1,000), you’ll be able to simply fill out the form in your browser, entering the number of sheets you have and the type of processing you need (PDF or JPG, OCR, etc.). The form will automatically calculate the exact price for you (including shipping!), and you’ll print it out and mail it to us with you fiche. We’ll process your order and send your fiche back along with a DVD of your digitized fiche images. We expect to have microfiche digitization available through the Small Order Form within the next few weeks.

Have a great 4th of July!

Hey . . . that's the historic railroad depot building that's still in our parking lot, which is also the logo of our frame shop Glen Arm Custom Framing!

A Ride on the Ma & Pa through Baltimore County in PhotosAug 13, 2:00pmHistorical Society of Baltimore CountyRailroad historian Rudy Fischer will take us on a virtual ride - via slides - along the path of the old Maryland and Pennsylvania (Ma & Pa) Railroad through Baltimore County. The Ma & Pa was formed in 1901 through the consolidation of the Baltimore and Lehigh Railway and the York Southern Railroad, and connected Baltimore, Maryland, and York, Pennsylvania, until the 1950s. The Ma & Pa transported passengers, mail, marble and slate, anthracite coal, lumber, manufactured goods, and agricultural products, especially milk, along its picturesque, meandering route.
