Measure Twice, Scan Once: Digitizing Text and Generating Fulltext Using OCR

March 23rd 2016 @ 9:00am to @ 10:30am
Scholars' Commons Digitization Lab (Wells E158)
Herman B Wells Library
Bloomington, IN 47405

Don’t let your field notes or dissertations turn to dust! This workshop is an introduction to scanning text materials to archival specifications and using OCR to generate fulltext. We will be discussing how to care for text-based materials, how to salvage them from sub-optimal storage conditions like dusty bookshelves or untouched file folders, how to scan them according to archival standards, and how to save them so they can be searchable online for years to come.  An excellent workshop for ensuring the future of your past.


Register for this workshop.
