1. MEMORIES: Preserving the Past With the Technology of the Future.

2. Table of Contents Part I: Digitization for Preservation What is Digitization? Explanations of digitization and methods used Examples of Digitization Part II: Digitizing the History of Kinsman What we hope to accomplish How much is there to do? Part III: Digitizing Ohio: The Ohio Memory Scrapbook What is Ohio Memory? Why we want to be part of this project Part IV: How it All Ties Together

3. Digitization for Preservation Applying Technology to the Archiving Process

4. What is Digitization? Digitization is the process of placing tangible, real world items into an electronic format. The use of digital cameras, flatbed scanners, and other computer technology to create “virtual” museums. The digital format gives the subject longevity far beyond what the original item would have.

5. What can be done with Digitization? This picture of the Kinsman Free Public Library is a scanned image of a photograph that is in the Library’s collection. It has been placed in a digital format using a flatbed scanner.

6. What does the Library do with Digitization Technology? We Preserve existing documents and relics We Digitize photographs We Organize data so that it is available to all

7. What are the advantages of Digitization over traditional Archiving? Digital archiving reduces wear and tear of original item A digital archive can be viewed anywhere in the world through an internet capable PC A digital archive can be used to “clean up” a photograph or object without altering the original

8. What does it mean to “clean up” an object?

9. Where can I see a digital archive? An example of a digital archive is closer to home than you might think. We at the Kinsman Free Public Library host a small digital archive on our website. And it’s growing all the time!

10. Digitizing the History of Kinsman Applying Technology to Preserve the History of our Community

11. The Focus of Digitization at Kinsman Library Due to the interest shown in various parts of our Digital history website, we have decided to focus on several key aspects of Kinsman’s history. Clarence Darrow The Kinsman Family The Parker Family

12. Why Focus There? Clarence Darrow is the most famous citizen of Kinsman. The Kinsman family, for whom the town is named, gave much to the community. The Parker family wrote many letters back and forth as relatives traveled west during the gold rush.

13. Who Looks at This Stuff?! People from all over the country and the world can view our digital history. So far, people have called from: Minnesota Kentucky California Louisiana

14. What will be done after this focus is completed? We have an entire room full of history to digitize! After we’ve completed the Library’s collection Of Clarence Darrow, Parker family and Kinsman Family Memorabilia, our focus will most likely shift first to Dr. E. Lyman Scott and then on to the rest of our collection.

15. Digitizing Ohio: The Ohio Memory Scrapbook

16. What is the Ohio Memory Scrapbook?

17. What does this have to do with us?

18. How do we make submissions? Submissions are made by subject categories Each subject category is subdivided into smaller categories Ohio Memory offers suggestions in each sub-category (Kinsman has in its collection objects fitting into almost all categories!) Some examples: Early Political records and artifacts. Travelers’ accounts Family Portraits Sheet music written locally or by local songwriters Maps and town plans And Much Much More!

19. Where can I go for more information? is the address of the Ohio Memory Website. Here you can find detailed information about submissions and criteria. http// is the address of the Ohio Bicentennial website. Information about Ohio’s 200th birthday can be found here is the address of the Ohio Historical Society. Much can be found here regarding all things related to the history of the state of Ohio.

20. How does this all tie together? Digitization in Practical Use

21. Where are we going with digitization? Digitization can be used to preserve, protect, and make widely available historical items Digitization can also be used to do things such as desktop publishing.

22. Digitization: Archives in the Future Digitization will soon be as widely used as traditional archiving methods. The advantages of Digital archiving; such as easily swapped files and pictures, longevity of the new digital laser formats, the worldwide area digital archives can exist in; make this a favorable method of archiving.
