@archivist_Liz Although there a ton of issues I have with my employer, they do give me complete freedom with computing platforms. I'm actively using macOS, Ubuntu, and Windows10 in my digitization labs.
The caveat is that I don't get any any assistance at all from our IT dept. I end up spending a lot of time setting up workstations and troubleshooting issues.
My employer has insisted today that I remove the categories of 'Digitization' and 'Digital Preservation' from my position description and replace them with 'Archival Expertise'.
I was an archivist for 4 years. I am no longer an archivist and don’t do archival work - I’m just in the archives dept.
#digipres folks: this is really wonderful: https://parametric.press/issue-01/unraveling-the-jpeg/ #jpeg
@email@example.com @ashley @dsalo Although I’m sure that it will temporarily curl slightly, you could just put the film directly on the glass since it seems to be an odd size. Base/shiny side down is worth a try. Newton’s rings might show up in the scans shiny side down, so definitely zoom in at 200x to check.
@ashley professional & hot/humid weather should never be used in the same sentence 😓
Did you know my !!con West talk from February is online? You should watch me talk about old video games and obsolete text encodings! https://youtu.be/t37Cr3FDyvU
@ashley Yes, I imagine that the pressure is on with this. 🤞🏻 I'm thankful that I only have to worry about my stuff.
