Working on Transactions of the Institution of the Rubber Industry metadata
Ahead of IRC2019 the library digitisation team are working on uploading the Transactions of the Institution of the Rubber Industry.
There is more to digitisation than just scanning the bound volumes. We have to identify whether the volumes are in good condition, where items start and finish and if all content is legible. In some cases lack of legibility will be flagged - this may be cause an item is damaged or because a volume is too tightly bound to get a clear image.
The image shows Volume I of the Transactions of the Institution of the Rubber Industry in preparation. The advertisements in this volume are a delight, there are interesting discussions about marketing and advertising as well as the technical papers on rubber itself.
