Hello Members of this Library and Information Science Community,
This week members of WSU NDSA continued work in the Grosscup Museum of Anthropology’s archive, on Wayne State University’s campus. Our members began working this past summer on digitizing the museum’s slide collection. A slide, also known as reversal film, is a mounted transparency intended for projection on a screen using a slide projector and the most common form is the 35 mm slide. The museum’s collection accounts to over 2000 slides framed in 2×2 inch cardboard and plastic mounts. Our members have been scanning these images into the museums software, Past Perfect 5.0. With their contributions, the NDSA student group has started digitally preserving the Grosscup Museum of Anthropology’s visual collection.
