The Cornell/Xerox/Commission on Preservation and Access Joint study in digital preservation : report, phase 1, January 1990-December 1991 : digital capture, paper facsimiles and network access by Anne R Kenney( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
The primary emphasis of this study of the use of digital technology to preserve library materials was the capture of brittle books as digital images and the production of printed paper facsimiles. Of equal interest, however, was the role of digital technology in providing access to library resources, and preliminary work in this area has also been accomplished. Based on extensive experimentation with one digital scanning system, the study reached five principal conclusions: (1) digital image technology provides an alternative--of comparable quality and lower cost--to photocopying for preserving deteriorating library materials; (2) subject to the resolution of certain problems, digital scanning technology offers a cost effective adjunct or alternative to microfilm preservation; (3) digital technology has the potential to enhance access to library materials; (4) through the implementation of document control structures, digital technology offers a means to facilitate access and to provide links between the library catalog and the material itself; and (5) the infrastructure developed for library preservation and access activities supports other applications in the electronic dissemination of information. This report is divided into three major sections: a description of the products developed to reach project goals; a review of the process of applying digital scanning technology to the preservation of and access to library materials; and a discussion of the findings. Four appendixes offer information on the comparative quality of paper and facsimile copies; a description of a cost study; assumptions of the cost study, including equipment, labor and materials costs; and a scanning diagram.

A Testbed for advancing the role of digital technologies for library preservation and access : a final report by Cornell University to the Commission on Preservation and Access, October, 1993 by Anne R Kenney( Book )
10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
In cooperation with the Commission on Preservation and Access, Xerox Corporation, Sun Microsystems, Inc., And the New York State Program for the Conservation and Preservation of Library Research Materials, Cornell University (New York) studied and established the effectiveness of digital technology to preserve and make available research library materials, evaluated image capture quality in binary scanning, digital computer output microfilm, and extended network access to the Digital Library through a client/server architecture. The main conclusions of the project are: (1) effective access over the Internet to an image-based digital library can be achieved from a variety of workstations; (2) Cornell has defined and will implement a digital document control structure that incorporates the best features of various Xerox prototype systems; (3) digital computer output microfilm that meets national standards for quality can be produced from 600 dpi (dots per inch) binary scanning; (4) binary scanning can reproduce many categories of printed illustrations and archival material in a manner superior or comparable to the quality obtained with standard light lens photocopy and microfilm processes; and (5) the infrastructure developed for library preservation and access activities supports other applications in the electronic dissemination of information. Five appendices cover: the class scanning system; document architecture description; testbed description; "DocuTech-printed" examples; and screen descriptions from digital library unix client. (Swc)

The Digital Preservation Consortium : mission and goals by Donald J Waters( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
The development of the National Information Infrastructure (nii) and the growing use of the Internet are creating a rapidly-changing environment for collaborative preservation and access. Within this environment, the Digital Preservation Consortium (dpc) seeks to advance the use and utility of digital technology for the preservation of and access to library materials by fostering the needed infrastructure. Some of the goals of the dpc are to verify and monitor the usefulness of digital imagery for preservation and access; to define and promote shared methods and standards for the production, storage, and distribution of digital images; to enlarge the base of materials preserved in digital image form; and to develop and maintain reliable and affordable mechanisms to gain access to digital image documents. Given its mission and goals for action the document concludes that the dpc needs to establish a formal constitution with defined criteria for membership and an internal organization that can sustain itself in the execution of its mission and goals.

Digital resolution requirements for replacing text-based material : methods for benchmarking image quality by Anne R Kenney( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
This tutorial provides a means to estimate resolution requirements for the use of digital imaging technology in converting text-based material. It is suggested that benchmarks for resolution can be calculated by evaluating the physical attributes of source documents and by applying Quality Index formulas that have been derived from those established for preservation microfilming. The formulas are based on three variables: the height of the smallest significant character, the desired quality to be obtained in the reformatted version, and the resolution of the recording device. For the past several years, the Cornell University Department of Preservation and Conservation (New York) has experimented using the Digital Quality Index formula to predict resolution requirements for a wide range of documents using a number of scanning devices. The results of these and other experiments confirm the utility of the Digital Quality Index formula for bitonal (black and white) scanning, but a slight modification to the formula is recommended in cases where grayscale scanning is employed. It is cautioned that the use of these formulas are for benchmarking purposes only. Assessment methods for scanner performance are discussed, and a continuous quality assurance program is recommended. Sections include: "Where to Begin"; "How To Determine Digital Image Quality"; "Scanning Methodologies and Compression Techniques"; "Bitonal Scanning"; "Grayscale Scanning"; "Verifying the Predicted Quality Index"; "Visual Inspection"; "Suggested Guidelines" and "Summary of Recommendations." Seven figures and three tables illustrate the process and data. (Contains 20 references.) (Mas)
