Meeting Notes

Tasks Completed this week:

1. Finished JCDL short paper and sent it to Ichiro and Cynthia.

2. Finished JCDL extended abstract and sent it to Ichiro and Cynthia.

3. Calculated the amount of time spent on digitization during the summer:

In 16 working days (7 *16 = 211 hours), 14 LP albums were digitized to their entirely. This included, however, some duplicated efforts in the beginning.

The average was 6 hours per album with positioning measurement (i.e. audio digitization; scanning of album covers, liner notes, and discs; metadata extraction, which included measuring physical positions and size of the visual contents of the album; and full-text entry)

The estimate time to digitize an LP album with no positioning measurement is 3 hours (i.e. audio digitization; scanning of album covers, liner notes, and discs; metadata extraction; and full-text entry)

4. Modified the workflow managment system for the digitization of David Edelberg's Handel Collection:
