Scanning Key Content of Text-Based Material at Point of Accessioning or Cataloging
This project proposes to insert scanning into the acquisitions or cataloging process for some of Harvard’s hidden printed book collections. In doing so, we seek to expand capabilities within our current infrastructure, challenge existing methodologies, speed up the process of making our collections available to our users, and lay groundwork for a much more dynamic and flexible future online catalog.
