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.
