Joint Project with University of Maryland Students
This semester, students from the University of Maryland’s Master of Information Management program are working on a project to help the Niels Bohr Library & Archives present digitized collections online.
The students are working with the image viewer originally designed for the Samuel Goudsmit papers, which were completely digitized and placed online in 2011. The application was designed for large-scale archival collections, so the students will help us adapt our procedures to suit the smaller materials we more often scan: manuscript biographies, institutional histories, and other small collections. The librarians and archivists regularly scan such materials in response to patron requests as part of a “scan on demand” service.
