Pocahontas Times Goes Live and BetterLight Owners Conference

Using the Pocahontas Times Digital Archives

Greetings!  It seems like we skipped spring and went straight to summer here in Glen Arm.  Baltimore tied the record at 98 degrees yesterday, and today will be almost that warm.

There’s a lot going on here.  We’re working on several larger microfilm scanning projects right now, with a lot of smaller microfilm and non-microfilm projects going in and out of the shop.  One of our customers, the Pocahontas County Historical Society, just published a great article about their completed project, which is a really good read.  The search mechanism to which they refer is an implementation of Adobe FullText Indexes, and it’s a great solution for inexpensive in-house keyword search capabilities without requiring any extra software (or even an Internet connection).

Also, we’re attending the annual BetterLight Owners Conference in San Carlos, CA this week . . . pretty much the center of the universe for all things related to digital scanning backs!  Of course, Creekside Digital has a BetterLight Super 8K system which we use for the imaging of cultural heritage projects as well as for our high-quality fine art reproduction services.

More soon!
