Digitization in the Real World

Professor Kwong Bor Ng  of Queens College (@kbng) and Jason Kucsma of Metro (Metropolitan New York Library Council)  have edited a book which describes lessons learned from 34 small to medium-sized digital projects, including several at CUNY.

Full text of the chapter entitled: Digitizing Civil Rights: An Omeka-based Pilot Digital Presence for the Queens College Civil Rights Archive” can be found here.  Congratulations go to grad students Valery Chen (@valerychen),  Jing Si Feng (@jfeng), and to College Assistant Kevin Schlottmann (@kevinschlottmann) for their hard work on this project.

Professors Claudia Perry (@c2perry) and Thomas Surprenant, both from Queens College, GSLIS also have a chapter in this book entitled:  “METRO Success Story:  Waterways of New York Project“) which chronicles QC graduate library students’ on-going experiences digitizing a collection of vintage postcards from the Erie Canal, Champlain Canal, Hudson River, New York harbor, and Long Island Sound.  To read this chapter, looks like you got to buy the book, which is available as a download, or in paper.
