As we get into the final days of the project things are coming together. All the imaging specified in the project has been completed – although how much of the content will be fully ingested into the Digital Library waits to be seen. Work continues on making the derivative images for delivery, and about 4000 images (and rising) have now been ingested into Fedora. We have the list of catalogue records and know how they are going to be linked to the images stored in Fedora. We’ve made the decision to concentrate on the ingest rather break this off and tie up other loose ends. The page-turning solution (not part of this project, but being developed simultaneously for the Digital Library) will be delivered by the end of the project but, as this project will be its first actual implementation, there will be a bit of installation work to do there.
However, things do seem to be coming together and we will have some samples of content to show to those people coming to the Colloquium next Wednesday.
