New Issue: Practical Technology for Archives

Reposted from the A&A listserv:

We are pleased to announce the publication of Issue no.5 of Practical Technology for Archives.

In this issue we have four excellent articles, one on using SwipeBox to present digitized materials, one about an alternative to 3D scanning, an article on CollectiveAccess, and another on low-budget large-scale digitization, which we hope you will find useful.

I you have an idea or proposal for Issue no.6, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

All the Best,

Randall Miles,
