Library and Information Science
The presentation covers the University of Connecticut Libraries’ efforts to digitize the school’s campus newspaper, from the time of its inception in 1896 to 1990. Source materials for the project were preservation microfilm reels from the Libraries’ Thomas J. Dodd Research Center’s holdings, which were sent to a vendor for batch reformatting. Issues with regard to clearly articulating client needs and evaluating various vendor deliverable options are discussed.
