Preservation Services recently completed the conservation and digitization of Chinese rubbings from the Harvard-Yenching Library. Preservation has been working on the digitization of Chinese rubbings for nearly 10 years, beginning in 2004 with the Fine Arts Library’s Rübel Chinese Rubbings Collection, and concluding with the imaging of the largest of the Harvard-Yenching Library’s rubbings, the last of which is 245 x 98.5 inches, with the resulting image stitched together from 18 shots.
FYI: Shots from Imaging Services run from timecodes 45 to 56 seconds. And we provide the trailer’s final sound effect.
I just watched the library’s copy.
Graphics Atlas is a sophisticated resource that presents a unique, object-based approach for the identification and characterization of prints and photographs.
Super cool. Imagine slideshows of library collections that run in public buildings, like the HU Information Office space, the Science Center, or the fancy-pants Harvard Club in NYC. Forward, back, zoom, show me the metadata, all via the waving of hands and poking the air with fingers.
