The IDI April 21, 2016 Library and Historical Society Seminar including a tour of the new IDI facility was well attended and all found the session informative and enjoyable. Congratulations to Elizabeth Lonegan of the Spotswood Friends of the library who was the lucky winner for the drawing for the Dell laptop PC. (Pictured Above)

IDI will be exhibiting at the NJLA convention at Harrah’s Hotel in Atlantic City May 17th and 18th in booth 307. Come by and visit us as we will also be holding a drawing for a Lenovo Windows 10 laptop PC.

In May IDI will be heading to Indiana, California and Philadelphia for on location Museum and University conversions. In April imaging conversion projects were completed in Washington DC and Texas. IDI also completed digitization projects of the Seton Hall University yearbooks and the Maplewood High School yearbooks for the Maplewood Library. We are also currently scanning the Maplewood City Directories which will be a favorite for genealogist searches once added to the library’s DigiFind-it Web Portal

IDI conversion teams have been digitizing content at the British Library in London since 2011. We are currently scanning a high profile Arabic Book Collection for Cengage Publishing. IDI to date has scanned over 2.2 million pages and Libraries across Egypt now have access to the world’s first major online archive of pre-20th century Arabic books.

Taking a Collection into the Digital Age

Pamphlets from the Oliveira Lima Library were the first items in the library’s collection to be digitized.

In the John K. Mullen of Denver Memorial Library, there is another library, one separate from Catholic University’s main collections housed on the floors above. It is filled with rare books, manuscripts, maps, photographs, artwork, and ephemera that once belonged to Brazilian diplomat, historian, and journalist Manoel de Oliveira Lima.

More than 60,000 printed works line the shelves of the four rooms that make up the Oliveira Lima Library. There are more than 700 manuscripts, letters from more than 1,400 correspondents, 60 scrapbooks, and a collection of art, maps, and photographs from the 19th and early 20th century. Oliveira Lima and his wife, Flora, corresponded with book dealers on three continents, made many purchases, and took great pride in building their collections. They understood that the items they acquired, even postcards, had future importance in preserving and interpreting the historical record.

Thomas Cohen, the Oliveira Lima Library’s director and associate professor of history, says the collection is a treasure of information related to the history and culture of Brazil and Portugal.

“Outside of Portugal and Brazil, few libraries are stronger than this one in terms of material related to those countries,” he explains. “The Oliveira Lima Library has a lot of unique materials that aren’t found anywhere else, including in Brazil and Portugal.”

It was nearly six years ago that Cohen was contacted by Gale, part of Cengage Learning, an educational content, technology, and services company that creates digital products that enable users to access and use unique research resources. Gale expressed interest in digitizing a significant portion of the Oliveira Lima Library to complement other one-of-a-kind collections in their product line.

“Gale goes all over the world digitizing primary source material,” says Cohen, who has headed the library since 1990. “They’ve worked with National Geographic, the Smithsonian Institution, and many universities. They approached me to see if I would be interested in an ambitious digitization project for the Oliveira Lima Library. I said that I had a strong interest but that we had staff limitations and it would be something we would have to work out carefully.”

Tom Cohen and Joan Stahl explain the process of digitizing materials from the library.

By partnering with staff from the University Libraries, Cohen was able to jumpstart the project. University Librarian Stephen Connaghan, and Joan Stahl, director of research and instruction, worked with Cohen and Gale on a contract that identified materials for digitization and procedures for scanning and preserving them. Stahl served as project manager for CUA.

Those involved agreed that the library’s collection of pamphlets would be a good place to begin. This large collection of 19th-early 20th-century ephemera covers topics such as politics, history, economics, agriculture, medicine, and literature, but many titles are in poor condition.

“The pamphlets weren’t going to improve over time in their condition,” Stahl says. “The paper on which they are printed is poor quality. They were deteriorating almost in front of our eyes.”

In their discussions with Gale, CUA staff negotiated to improve both the storage of and access to the titles.

“We wanted to get better bibliographic control for the materials so we arranged to have barcodes put on them,” Stahl explains.

The pamphlets were carefully packed up and shipped to a facility in New Jersey for digitization. In six months, more than 2,500 items were scanned.

The final product, Brazilian and Portuguese History and Culture: The Oliveira Lima Library, is sold as a stand-alone product, but is freely available to the entire CUA community with a link on both the University Libraries’ and Oliveira Lima Library’s website. The collection is introduced with a short, informative essay by Maria Angela Leal, assistant curator of the Oliveira Lima Library.

The process has produced numerous benefits, including improved access to the library’s materials for a wider audience. Now that the pamphlets are available digitally, they don’t need to be handled as much by researchers. The library can provide electronic copies of the materials to those interested. Researchers who wish to consult the printed pamphlets, however, are still able to do so.

The pamphlets were rehoused in new archival boxes as part of the digitization project.

Researchers also can search across the collection more easily thanks to Gale’s database. A search can quickly pull up items related to a topic of interest, whether it’s located in the Oliveira Lima Library or in a related collection that has also been scanned by Gale.

Stahl points out that digitizing the collection can provide even more insight into a particular item.

“With a digital item, you can zoom in on the material,” she explains. “If someone has written a note on the page or in the margin area and you can’t really read it, now, because it’s digitized, you can enlarge it. You might discover things that you would not otherwise have discovered.”

“There are tradeoffs with digitization,” Cohen adds. “It’s not necessarily second best to working with the original object. You can do research on a primary source at any time, anywhere in the world.”

A final benefit to the process has been a strengthened working relationship between this special collection and the University Libraries.

“This project wouldn’t have been possible without the collaboration of the University Libraries,” Cohen says. “It shows what a productive relationship we can have when we work together.

Cohen says the next step is to digitize the library’s manuscripts and a large collection of its rare books. He anticipates that phase to be completed by April 2016.

Cohen and Stahl say they both hope that broader access to the library will introduce people to Manoel de Oliveira Lima and the importance of the materials in the collection.

“I hope

[digitization] is a window into this collection and that people researching any number of topics might find out that this collection exists,” Stahl explains. “It’s kind of a hidden treasure on our campus.”

“This collection had one man’s vision behind it,” Cohen adds. “I hope people who interact with this collection understand that one man, with important collaboration from his wife, was able to put together this valuable collection over the course of 50 years. All the materials in the collection, from the printed materials to the manuscripts to the photographs and artwork, have great research value.”

Imaging Innovations from IDI and DMM, April 2016

Innovative News

In April IDI completed digitizing a high profile Shakespeare Collection. The Shakespeare in Performance is an essential resource for all scholars of Shakespearean drama, featuring rare and unique prompt books from the world-famous Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC.
The prompt books tell the stories of key performances as they were performed in theatres throughout Great Britain, the United States and further afield, between the seventeenth and twentieth centuries. In a mixture of handwritten manuscripts and printed typescripts, often interspersed with personal notes, sketches, and cues for lighting and music, this resource takes users behind the scenes to shine a light on how the Bard’s timeless works have been interpreted by theatre companies, actors and directors across the centuries. Researchers can follow how each production unfolded, see what amendments were made to the lines and stage management over the years as audiences and social culture changed, and explore the influences and connections between different productions of the same play.  The resource also contains carefully curated case studies built around 17 selected performances, using important supporting material such as photographs, costume designs and music scores to highlight key aspects of each production.
IDI also started another large 700,000 page Pharmaceutical conversion in Massachusetts.  In February and in March IDI shredded 3,800 boxes of files we scanned for a Pharmaceutical Co. from September to December.  IDI is proud of all our employees who completed this enormous task which required a double shift and operating 7 days a week.
The IDI Library and Historical Society Seminar planned for April 21stincludes a tour of the new IDI facility still has a few openings.  Please call for your reservation.  We are serving lunch and there will be a drawing for a laptop PC.
IDI has used Konica Minolta book scanners for sale including Scan Divas, PS7000c’s, PS5000’s and PS7000MKII’s. These units are in excellent condition and come with PCs and software. These units are perfect for scanning books or other bound publications and for inter-library loans.   IDI is a Konica Minolta re-seller and we have maintained the units very well and will provide training and warranties with the units.  Please call for pricing.
IDI’s Digital Memory Media completed a large conversion of 450 VHS videos for the FBI in March and we kicked off the Spring Fund Raising events in March and we have the following sessions scheduled. IDI can
run 3 sessions simultaneously on a Saturday. Please call to reserve an event for your Library Historical Society or Religious Organization. Dates are filling up fast.
Digital Media Memory now offers free pick-up and delivery in the Metropolitan area for orders exceeding $500.  IDI will also send an experienced technician or marketing rep to answer questions, consult and write-up the orders.

Innovative Document Imaging Launches New E-Publishing Services: End-to-End Solutions for Publishers, Digital Books, Newspapers and Magazines for Customers

As more and more people read books, newspapers and magazines with tablets and smart phones, Innovative Document Imaging, a leading company in digital document industry, launches new e-publishing services.

“We’re on our way to a full-blown digital revolution in America and elsewhere. Tablets and smartphones are a key part of everyday life. People don’t want to carry heavy books and a number of newspapers with them while on the move. They want to have everything on their handheld devices. On the other hand, one of the largest drains on corporate funds still haunting companies today is reliance on paper documents. E-publishing cuts operating costs significantly,” said Jordan Baron, Sales Manager at Innovative Document Imaging.

The new services focus on XML, composition and e-book and newspaper conversion. People get to read their favorite books, newspapers and magazines instantly, regardless of time and any physical place. Publishers get a cost-effective and customized end-to-end solution for their products.

Sam Williams, Director at a large publishing firm in the UK, said the following about the new e-publishing services at IDI. “I would like to take a moment to say how pleased I am with their ebooks services and everything that they have done. I am particularly impressed with their professionalism, communication, and attention to detail.”

“Our Publishing client was very satisfied with the quality of IDI’s services in the digitization project,” said Tamara of Numen Europe. “Everything was well communicated and the project was completed well before the specified deadline.”

XML is a markup language designed to improve simplicity, generality and usability across the internet. Innovative Document Imaging’s composition services also include editing as well as design and graphics. The company is familiar with all of the leading file formats in e-books and newspapers and handles around eight European languages.
