Using Microsoft Silverlight to Create Metadata Capture for Digitization Process…04.17.10

17 04 2010

Updating my work in creating digital libraries, our IT Dept. has provided an alpha program using Silverlight for metadata capture.  Once the bugs are worked out of this program, it’s on to creating and integrating an image capture software program which will capture and process Cannon photo images taken by our BookDrive Pro book scanners.  The next step will be to provide a mechanism and scheme to archive the files.  We will then process these images using Omnipage17 Pro OCR software to extract jpeg and text files for each image and archive the results.  Finally, we have to work out a plan to publish the results to our commercial website.  However, the digital library web interface and search programs have also yet to be created by our IT Dept.

We already have almost 40GB of data, non-copyrighted or out-of-copyright material, downloaded in PDF files.  These PDFs will be processed through the metadata capture and OCR processing stages and then posted to our digital library.

There are commercial programs which include all of the above processes including a digitization workflow, however, the company’s desire is not to output PDFs but jpegs and text files for search engine keywords which will be picked up by web crawlers.  The user interface and search capabilities are important but secondary to this operation.
