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!

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) strives to serve and strengthen our republic by promoting excellence in the humanities and conveying the lessons of history to all Americans. To help make the humanities accessible to all, NEH is introducing In the Field, its first ever web series which takes a deep dive into NEH-funded projects and products in the field of the humanities. The first episode of In the Field (bit.ly/2h9J4Vn) takes viewers through the inner workings of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). The NDNP is a partnership between NEH, The Library of Congress (LOC), and state projects that provides enhanced access to United States newspapers published between 1690 and 1963. NEH awards support state projects that select and digitize historically significant titles which are then aggregated and permanently maintained by the Library of Congress. Watch now: bit.ly/2h9J4Vn
