Collection Synergy: Making a Scholar-Photographer's Legacy Images More Widely Available in a Digital Environment
A two-year project originally focused on digitizing a retiring faculty member’s original location slides of Midwestern architecture expanded its scope to include the professor’s collection of historic picture postcards documenting the same structures. Assessment of the copyright status of the postcards showed them all to be in the public domain, and hence shareable. A final component of the project was to add embedded metadata to the digital images documenting these photographs and postcards.
