Next Age of Discovery Next Age of Discovery Updated May 8, 2009 11:59 p.m. ET In a 21st-century version of the age of discovery, teams of computer scientists, conservationists and scholars are fanning out across the globe in a race to digitize crumbling literary treasures. In the process, they're uncovering unexpected troves of new finds, including never-before-seen versions of the Christian Gospels, fragments of Greek poetry and commentaries on Aristotle. Improved technology is allowing researchers to scan ancient texts that were once unreadable -- blackened in fires or by chemical erosion, painted over or simply too fragile to unroll.

Awful Library Books Janet Reno Simon 1994 This one came out of my library.This book has had exactly zero checkouts and has been in the collection since the mid 1990s. Of course, Janet Reno is a good subject for a youth biography. I wonder if she is just not on the kids’ radar as an important person. Regardless, Janet could use an upgrade since this book barely covers her tenure with the Clinton administration. Awful Library Books

How Open Source Software Can Improve the Library - Remember a time when doing research required us to have to go to 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.

Infrared cleaning is a technique used by some film scanners and flatbed scanners to reduce or remove the effect of dust and scratches upon the finished scan. 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.
