Digitization

Scan Settings

  • 3000 px on the long end (500-600 dpi)
  • 24 bit
  • Full color

Process

  • Scan the page, saving the TIFF file in the appropriate issue's folder in "Childrens_Books\TIFFs_In"
  • All pages should be cropped to the size of the page, retaining all text and margins, and rotated to the proper orientation

File Naming

Each book should have its own folder, named according to the book's call number. Replaces spaces with hyphens. If the call number starts with "Juv", ignore that part and skip to the number. E.g., "Juv 800 T531s" goes in the folder 800-T531s.

Within each folder, give each image a number, using three digits, starting with 001, then label the page, using the printed page number or appropriate term. If the first page after the cover is not page 1, use lowercase roman numerals for the preceding pages. If the book doesn't have page numbers, then tread the first page as number 1, and go up from there. Use the following pattern:

    Folder Name
+   hyphen (-)
+   3-digit page order
+   underscore (_)
+   page number
+   file type (.tif)

Refer to the example to see how to handle the front and back covers, pages preceding page 1, and blank pages at the end of the book.
