P02 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - Atlas Digitization: Preservation and Access in a Small Archive

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Oyster Bay Historical Society houses a collection of bound atlases from the 19th and 20th centuries. Because they show a tremendous amount of wear due to their age and usage, we digitized the most commonly requested plates. Presented is information about the process, physical and technical challenges, and the outcome of this extensive project. With limited case studies available in regard to atlas digitization, this poster is presented to motivate and guide other repositories.
