  • Stage Musicals A Digital Collection Kristin Amsden Aileen Marshall Theresa Wagner
  • Planning Process
    • Finding a topic
      • Stage musicals was a topic for which we all had a keen interest
      • All had physical objects in this area that we wanted to share.
  • Planning Process
    • Creating purpose
      • Focus on just a few stage productions to offer depth
      • Target audience
  • Digitization Process
    • Digitized own contributions to project
      • i.e. playbills, music, etc.
    • Did not have set requirements on types
    • Each used different equip as available
  • A few examples…
  • Digitization Specs
    • We had to agree upon spec even though we were using different equipment for the digitization process.
    • Images
    • We chose to scan these at this rate in order to have a manageable file size for our end users, while still maintaining the image quality of the original.
    • Resolution: 300 x 300 dpi
    • Depth: 24 bit color
    • Hardware: Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner / HP Photosmart C4180 All-in-One / Epson Perfection V700
    • Software: Adobe Photoshop Pro / Gimp
  • Specs
    • Text
    • Both grayscale and black and white imaging was used to digitize our text objects. For the sheet music, the grayscale gave better reproduction quality.
    • Resolution: 300 x 300 dpi
    • Depth: 8 bit grayscale
    • Hardware: Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner / HP Photosmart C4180 All-in-One
    • Software: Adobe PrintShop Pro, also collected and OCRed with Adobe Acrobat 8.0
    •  
  • Specs
    • Video
    • These were downloaded from Youtube and then converted to usable formats.
    • Software: OnlineVideoConverter.com to convert flash video to MPEG file, Windows Movie Maker to clean up video quality / FVL to MPEG Converter for Ipod .5.3
    • File type: mpeg
    • Variable bit rate
    • Resolution: 320 x 240 pixels, aspect: 4:3, 30 frames/sec

  • Problems & Solutions
    • Differences in Tech Experience
      • Each of us had a diff level of tech competency
      • Caused some confusion esp when communicating over e-mail
    • Possible Solution
      • Make sure to discuss these differences in person at the beginning
  • Problems & Solutions
    • Group Organization
      • Never named an official group leader or other group functions
      • Work would have been more efficient
    • Solution
      • Name a group leader to help facilitate discussion and keep the focus of the project in order.
  • Problems & Solutions
    • Division of functions of the DL team
      • It was rather inefficient for each member to go all the tasks in preparing the objects for digitization
    • Solution
      • Have one person do I ndividual functions like one digitize, another apply metadata, etc.
      • Hard to do since we all live in diff. cities.
  • Which DAMS?
    • There were many to choose from
    • Chose ContentDM

      • Most widely used software
