I have been remiss in sharing our blog posts lately, so here are links to the articles from the past couple of weeks. We’ve got some exciting projects underway!
We’ve gone beyond paper collections and are now digitizing audiovisual collections. We’re super-excited to have our first audio items in the Digital Library — and it’s really great music, too! You can stream the music online or download the mp3s.
Another exciting new venture is putting some of our stuff into Project Gutenberg’s proofreading project to improve the text OCR and create an ebook version of some of our materials. Let us know if there are any items you would particularly like to see get the Gutenberg treatment!
We recently celebrated our digitization of The Villanovan, the student newspaper at Villanova University. Read about the event and the process. This collection showcases not only the history of Villanova, but also how global events affected the campus and changes in advertising over time. There’s some really interesting stuff, even if you’re not affiliated with Villanova!
