Hello readers! The summer at Special collections is flying by and next week will already be my last week here as the Diane Werley Smith intern ’73. Though the weeks are winding down, we still are busy as bees here in Special Collections. As I said in my last post, I finally finished the rehousing of the Dance Card collection, and the next step taken my Alexa and myself was to start scanning and digitizing the cards for a digital collection. We chose to digitize 56 from around 80 dance cards to serve as highlights of the collection, for their aesthetics and unique charm. From that point we went through the tedious task of scanning each card, some just the front and cover, others multiple pages. After that we learned from Catherine how to create metadata for each card and to upload them into a digital collection. [excerpt]
