What have I been doing for the last 2 years?
In the beginning of 2010, I was hired to create a digitization program to create subject-specific digital libraries.
Working with a programmer from our IT Dept. to create proprietary database software based on a Dublin Core-type metadata scheme and image capture/processing software, it took one year to plan, prepare and launch a digitization program.
Our website is currently in the design phase with an outside contractor.
With 1 librarian and 2 part-time book scanning technicians using modified BookDrivePro book scanners, the following has been accomplished (actual book scanning began March 2011):
9,648 Total Books
3,097 Book Subjects
936,434 Book Pages
3,948,777 Total Page Images
4,943,274 Files in 179,273 Directories - 3.07 TB of data
