For each object, follow these procedures for workflow and quality control as you go:

Handling materials

  • Pay attention to the quality of the physical object; if there is any chance of damage during scanning, consult with a supervisor for instructions.
  • If it appears that what you are to digitize is a duplicate or an unclear image of questionable worth, consult with a supervisor for instructions. We do NOT digitize duplicate images or items of no research value.

Scanning/optimization

  • Make/optimize scans
  • Visually check the quality of scans
  • Be careful when inputting numbers in EpsonScan's automated system for file naming

Working with metadata

  • Fill in missing item-level metadata in spreadsheet, if there is any
  • Check existing metadata
  • Compare descriptions and filenames in spreadsheet with the digital objects

Uploading to share drive

  • Upload scans from local hard drive to share drive
  • Delete already uploaded files from local hard drive

Documentation

  • Enter all work in TrackingFiles spreadsheet
  • If you notice discrepancies between TrackingFiles and what's on the share drive, correct them
