About this collection

This collection contains text searchable volumes of the Journal of the Arkansas Medical Society and related titles from 1870 to 1922. The digitization of the journals was made possible by a federally funded 2011 Digital Preservation Award from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Contract No. HHSN-276-2011-00007-C with the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library.

The text in this digital collection was extracted using OCR software.  Accuracy varies due to the print quality and physical condition of the original as well as the font sizes and types.  Therefore, in addition to keyword searches, users are advised to always review the page images for the time period being researched.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

The approx. 14,984 page images in this collection were photographed by five Library staff members from May to December of 2012.  The images were captured with a BookDrive Pro system equipped with two Canon Rebel T2i EOS 550D cameras.  The camera settings were ISO 400; 1/100; F5.0; and automatic white balance.  Using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional software (DPP), the RAW image files were visually inspected for clarity, skew, and completeness.   DPP was also used for renaming batches of files when necessary.  After inspection, the RAW files were rotated, cropped, deskewed, & exported as color, 300 ppi master Tifs (archived) using the BookDrive Editor software.  Copies of the Tif files were processed with OCR software [ReadIris Pro-version 12], and exported as compressed PDFs (Image-Text) for upload to CONTENTdm.  The collection in CONTENTdm was set to display the uploaded PDFs as compound objects.  For further details about this project, contact Suzanne Easley easleymyra@uams.edu or Daphne Hyatt at DNHyatt@uams.edu
