NEH Grant Project: Saving and Sharing the AGS Library's Historic Nitrate Negative Images With generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the American Geographical Society Library of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries (AGSL) has been able to institute a two-year, $315,000 grant project. Our NEH grant project "Saving and Sharing the AGS Library's Historic Nitrate Negative Images" began in May 2010. The scope of the project is to re-house, scan, create metadata for, and preserve on a long-term basis, the approximately 68,000 nitrate negatives in its photography collection. The ultimate goal of this effort is to provide universal access to this rich resource over the Internet.
About - Historical Photographs Working in concert with Metadata Services and Digital Projects , staff in Special Collections & University Archives selected several representative photographic collections for digitization and online display. Selection criteria were based on several factors, including the historic content of the photographs, the pure visual appeal of individual images, and finally, research requests from the past. The larger goal of the University of Oregon Photograph Collection is to make the public aware of the quality and depth of the photograph collections owned by Special Collections & University Archives and to encourage further research on the original photographic materials.
Database selection The goal of this project is to catalog and digitize each of the 1,780 slides within the Claire Holt collection. Microsoft Excel was selected as the application most suited to cataloguing requirements. Image browser After researching options available for creating and maintaining a widely-accessible virtual collection, Luna Imagings In sight® browsing software was selected as the most appropriate way to present the Claire Holt images over the Internet.
