How to create an OCR List

  1. Open the collection's TrackingFiles log file
  2. For the files you are uploading, copy those rows to a new spreadsheet
  3. In the new spreadsheet, delete all columns EXCEPT: Filename and OCR?
    • This will results in a two-column list, with only one filename per line -- which is what the script is looking for
    • OCR? should be filled in with 1 or 0 for each item (1=yes to OCR, more than half of the item is typewritten, 0=no to OCR)
    • If it isn't, take the time to look over the items in Bridge and fill in that column
  4. Save as tab delimited file called [collection number].ocrList.txt
    • Example: u0003_0001577.ocrList.txt
  5. Put in collection's Admin folder (in Digital_Coll_Completed directory, of course!)
