Prior to the beginning of this digitization project, there had only been 13 patron requests for use of (or information from) the S. D. Cabaniss collection over the past 5 years:
 
*2005  1 patron
 
*2006  1 patron
 
*2007  1 patron
 
*2008  6 patrons
 
*2009  4 patrons
 
  
We ascribe the jump in accesses in 2008 to the NHPRC-funded processing of this important collection, under the "Bringing Alabama's African American History to Light" (NARA06GRANT-048) effort.  However, processing must be followed by digitization to provide the widest possible access to content.

This is the documentation for "Digitizing the S. D. Cabaniss Papers," an NHPRC-funded grant project which ran from January 1, 2010 through February, 2011.

The grant "Digitizing the S.D. Cabaniss Papers", part of the "Digitizing Historical Records" effort by NHPRC, was funded for 14 months. The intent was to provide online access to the content in a low-cost, scalable model which simulates online the experience of the patron in the reading room. That is, the finding aid provides the descriptive information about the content, and from the finding aid, content in each series is linked in the order found in each file and box.

The method followed kept the cost well below the projected $1.87 per page. This is a valuable model for mass digitization of huge collections for which institutions cannot feasibly afford the development of item-level metadata.


More information about the grant can be found [here].

Documentation of work flows, progress, processes, procedures, and access to software, are all available below.
