The Free Library creates archival objects as base components for all of its digital collections. These images, of course, meet our standard requirements.
Project Standards and Specifications
In addition to meeting standards, most digital projects require various accommodations specific to the parameters of the project and the media being digitized. The process and specific accommodations for imaging the manuscripts included:
Defining required metadata for the hybrid project database in Part E of the FLP Data Dictionary.
