Scanning Sheet Music

  1. Open Epson Scan. --Be sure to scan sheet music with the following settings in Epson Scan (once you set each of the tabs, your settings should be saved, but always check after you login):
    1. Mode: Professional Mode
    2. Document Type: Reflective
    3. Document Source: Document Table
    4. Auto Exposure Type: Photo
    5. Image Type: 24-bit Color
    6. Resolution: 600 dpi
    7. Adjustments: None of the tabs listed should be checked (Unsharp Mask, Descreening, Color Restoration, Backlight Correction, and Dust Removal). Uncheck them if they are checked.
    8. Configuration Tab: Click on "No Color Correction"
  2. Open the Sorted Sheet Music excel file:
    1. Click on Share Drive
    2. Click on Digital Projects
    3. Click on Digital Coll-in progress
    4. Click on u0004_Sheet_Music
    5. Click on SheetMusic-Metadata
    6. Click on sheet_music_sorted.xlsx
      1. Once open, this excel file can be left open for the duration of the scanning (unlike Tracking Files).
      2. You will add file names (in column C) and note how many pages were scanned (in column K) for each piece of music you scan. The file name is always the next number in line, even if that piece of music is missing from the box. If a piece of music is missing, type in the file name (SM0---) and under Notes in column K, type SM0--- NOT FOUND IN BOX.
