Digital Yearbooks

Image

Yesterday I had the good fortune of touring UNC Chapel Hill’s Digital Heritage Center.  They have a great setup in a beautiful building.  I was really impressed with their Scribe system that they got from the Internet Archive.  It is the fastest way that I have seen to digitize a book.  It sure beats a flatbed scanner.  I was also there to deliver 33 high school yearbooks for their digital yearbook project and 329 pages of material for the ongoing Wilson County’s Greatest Generation digital project.

Also if anyone in Wilson County who is reading this has any yearbook, especially from any small schools and African American high schools, that they want to donate to the library or let us digitize, please let me know.
