Finishing up and possible grant application

November 2, 2008 at 6:14 pm (IMLS Fellowship)

This week I will be going over to Drake to upload the metadata and images from the postcard collection on to CONTENTdm.  This past week I worked on the narrative section for the collection that describes the scope and sequence of the project, as well as defines the practices used to populate the metadata fields.  I have a few transcriptions left, including the most difficult ones in Swedish, and then I should be set.  This is great timing as it looks that DMPL may be pursuing a grant opportunity that will help fund the second part of my project, the oral histories.  For the time being we will be moving forward with the interviews that have already been transcribed.  Joe did a test migration and it seems to be appropriate in quality for the time being.  We will be taking several over to the a/v company to be sampled in the next week or two.  Because I am going to L.A. to present at a conference and then have poster session at the end of the week, next week is not looking quite as productive as I would like, but I should be back on track the week of the 17th.
