Digitization of this collection was done in-house on a flatbed scanner scanned at 600 dpi, 24-bit color (or 8-bit grayscale) and saved as uncompressed TIFF images. The TIFF images were converted by CONTENTdm to JPEG2000 images to provide flexible display options.


Transcription of the text was accomplished using optical character recognition by ABBYY FineReader as supplied by CONTENTdm. This enables full-text searching. The option to download a PDF version of each catalog or page of the catalog is also provided.
