Our client, a music library in South Germany, maintains a vast collection of vinyl records. It is of high interest especially for experts, since it comprises a considerable number of musical works by musicians from the region, in a range and variety probably not to be found anywhere else.
Project examples "digitalizing"
For the library of a northern German university of music, we have been electronically registering CD stocks for many years. Parts of the sheet music collection have also been processed in the meantime. These holdings were to be listed in the database of the Common Library Network (GBV).
Our task was to process and structure song pamphlets in the catalog of the Southwest German Library Network based on PDF documents and automatically generated catalog entries according to appropriate regulations and linking to additional information.
A scientific reference work only available in print was processed electronically, so that the information in it is now searchable and usable in a multitude of ways. A special challenge was posed by diagrams in different depths of detail (similar to a map at different scales), in which data was deposited visibly or invisibly.
