I’ve got some time off from work, and what do I spend my time doing… digitising my own collections.
I thought I had done much more than I had. It even took a while to remember my login details as its been that long since I logged on to the back end.
I’ve added some Daguerreotypes and Ambrotypes. I’m sure it doesn’t take this long at work, having to organise the items, digitise, edit, make surrogates, input metadata into spreadsheet and cross reference for accuracy. Then output and upload to the server. Then check and attache image to record.. and I’m only 704 items in. And I’m only creating the most basic of metadata, more as an inventory for my own purposes than anything else.
I might start on some printed material for a change of scenery.
So, heres a selection of some favourites.
