DIGITIZATION OF VISUAL MATERIALS
Digitization of the visual materials including the Kerdyk Realty photos was performed using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner. All original scans were captured in 24 bit color at 600 pixels per inch resolution. From these master TIFF images, full-size TIFF, full-size JPEG2000, and JPEG thumbnail images were derived using an Adobe Photoshop. These derived images all conform to nationally established guidelines and are uploaded for display on the web. The color master TIFF images are deposited for long term digital preservation in the Florida Digital Archive maintained by FCLA.
ITEM DESCRIPTION & METADATA
Descriptive information for each image is pulled from a local database created by the FIU Libraries' Digital Collections Center, and then used to produce a Dublin Core record for the PALMM digital library. Technical administrative, preservation and structural metadata are recorded in a METS XML file, which is loaded into the PALMM digital library and the Florida Digital Archive.
