Facsimile Reprints and Reproductions as Preservation Copies

Kathryn Lybarger

KLA/KSMA Joint Spring Conference 2012

April 12, 2012


Brittle Books project

  • Box?

  • Withdraw?

  • Replace?


Photocopy Reprints

  • Grainy quality

    • Generational loss

  • Created by automatic scanning

    • Pictures may be dark or blotchy

    • Maps or other foldouts may be omitted

  • Overall not bad


Printed text

  • May be high quality, effectively a new edition

  • Illustrations and maps may be included

  • Watch out for printing anomalies


Printed (uncorrected) OCR

  • Font is lovely, text is often garbage

  • No illustrations, tables

  • Table of contents and index omitted (or point to other pages)


Wikipedia printouts

  • Good way to get otherwise unavailable content into your library

  • May include multiple articles (hypertext!)

  • Why not just catalog the Wikipedia article?

  • Out of date quickly, but probably not vandalized
