The Upgrade to NextScan Lumintec

Now for some music with #smithsonianmusic! We're currently working with National Museum of American History Archives Center to digitize thousands of posters related to WWI and WWII, including this troop morale poster from 1917: collections.si.edu/search/detail/edanmdm:siris_arc_176697

According to an article from the New York Times published in the fall of 1918, the Phonograph Records Recruiting Corps was created by Vivien Burnett, son of novelist and playwright Frances Hodgson Burnett, to collect records, machines, and needles to provide music to soldiers overseas during WWI, by recruiting and drafting "slacker records."
