2. Expert Consultant for Digitization
The Copyright Office has begun a new multi-year effort to
digitize nearly 90 million catalog cards, record book pages, and
microfilm records containing facts about the ownership of
copyrights from 1870 to 1998. The principal goals are to
preserve the records (many of which have historical and cultural
value) and to provide online access for the public. To achieve
these goals the Copyright Office seeks to create good quality
image files of the paper and microfilm records and index them in
the best manner affordable.
We have learned a lot about digitization from our contacts with
other organizations that have similar projects including the
Smithsonian, the Archives, and other parts of the Library of
Congress, but our knowledge and experience is limited. We would
therefore like to engage expert consultant services to help us
select the correct resolution, bit depth, tonality, compression,
and file formats for these records as well as to advise on
quality assurance and inventory control.
Any leads or recommendations in this regard would be most
appreciated. Interested contractors may directly contact Michael
Burke, Project Manager, at (202) 707-8356 or [log in to unmask]
