Compiled by: Brian Taves (Chair) Judi Hoffman Karen Lund February 1998 Table of Contents Introduction Of all the types of subject access to moving image works, genre studies has emerged as the most frequently used and theoretically developed system.

Genre-form Guide (Motion Picture and Television Reading Room, Library ...

Genres are recognizable primarily by content, and to a lesser degree by style. While developing terminology for application to the moving image holdings of archives and libraries, the Moving Image Genre-Form Guide follows the traditional methods of film and television scholarship as closely as possible. Utilizing this range of previous work, a committee within the Motion Picture/Broadcasting/Recorded Sound Division has compiled a comprehensive, practical guide to moving image genre and form terminology ever created, covering some 150 terms, all fully defined and exemplified.

The conventional focus of academic genre studies is on such standard fictional genres as Western, Gangster, and Musical films. How Open Source Software Can Improve the Library - Remember a time when doing research required us to have to go to the library?

How Open Source Software Can Improve the Library -

Your school had one, and that's probably where you spent most of your library time. If it wasn't your school, then it was probably your local town or city library. Some of these libraries may have been tiny little holes in the wall with just a few thousand books while others were huge university libraries with 10,000 of books, magazines, newspapers, cd, microfiche, and more. The depth a library can have can range greatly; it all depends on how much money that library gets in funding. The big college libraries obviously get the most due to the fact that they are part of an actual business model that produces a significant amount of money. Organizing Libraries.

Infrared cleaning

It works by collecting an additional infrared channel from the scan at the same position and resolution as the three visible color channels (red, green, and blue). The infrared channel, in combination with the other channels, is used to detect the location of scratches and dust. Once located, those defects can be corrected by scaling or replaced by inpainting.

Method[edit] The three color dyes in typical color film emulsions are largely transparent to infrared light, so the infrared image is almost uniformly clear, unlike the RGB images.[1] On the other hand, dust and scratches absorb in the infrared.[2] Any dust spots or scratches appear as dark marks in the infrared, making them easy to find and compensate for. If most or all of a pixel is occluded, scaling is not feasible. Infrared scanning[edit] History[edit] References[edit] ATN-reading-lists - home. Ted Marcus' Virtual Light Table: Scanning 110-Format Film (and Kodachrome) Scanning 110-Format Film (and Kodachrome) Updated February 2013 Preamble · Prerequisites · Pitfalls · Process · Past Preamble This article grew out of techniques I found mostly by trial and error while scanning my collection of 110-format (Pocket Instamatic) Kodachrome slides.

Some of those pictures are in the Europe Through the Front Door section of this Web site. Prerequisites 110 film requires at least a 4000dpi scanner. You’ll need a dedicated film scanner, which is unfortunately now an endangered species. My Plustek 7600i scanner, at 7200dpi, can produce a 4535x3042 scan from an uncropped 110 slide. The 7200dpi scan may not provide any more real detail, but the extra pixels make enlarging and cropping easier. If your 110 slides are in 30x30mm plastic mounts, you’ll need to locate at least one 50x50mm adapter to fit the little slides into a scanner’s slide holder.

Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) EAD (Encoded Archival Description) Help Pages. Mission Statement The EAD Roundtable of the Society of American Archivists is intended to promote the implementation and use of encoding standards for dissemination of archival information. To this end, we aim to provide tools and information for use in encoding archival descriptions; discuss and facilitate the use of software for markup, parsing, indexing, and delivery; and monitor and contribute to encoding standard development for archival description. Background Following the creation of EAD Listserv in 1996 and the launch of the official EAD website by Library of Congress in 1996, members of the Society of American Archivists identified the need for a group to handle the more informal aspects of EAD implementation.

A petition to create a Roundtable in late 1997 was approved by the Council of the Society of American Archivists.
