Notes

Abstract:
At UF, each digital / data collection is affiliated with one or more Curators or Program Directors, with collaborative support from the UF Curator for Digital Collections and/or the Digital Scholarship Librarian and/or Digital Development & Web Services.
General Note:
Many publishers, scholarly contributors, and others often contribute born-digital PDFs where they do not want the PDFs available online. In cases where contributors are granting permissions for page view image views enabled (JPG, JP2, JPGthumbnails) and not the PDF, they are granting permissions to allow the item to be easily viewed online but not easily printed in high quality. This document explains the digital curation workflow processing for these needs.

Born Digital Curation of PDFs for High Quality D isplay ( and Not Printing) Many publishers, scholarly contributors, and others often contribute born digital PDFs where they do not want the PDFs available online. In cases where contributors are granting permissions for pa ge view image views enabled ( JPG, JP2, JPGthumbnails) and not the PDF, they are granting permissions to allow the item to be easily viewed online but not easily printed in high quality For these, the workflow process is: Ch eck to see if there is a catalog record or other record to import. If there is a record, import the record. Otherwise, create a new item record directly. The goal is to create high quality TIF files f rom the PDF Open the PDF file in Acrobat Professional or other full software for PDF editing The instructions here are for using a more recent version of Acrobat Professional. o S elect Save As o Select to s ave as TIF (and change the default file name to be .tif instead of .tiff) o Check the settings to ensure they look have no compression or other things set, and that the save options are either RGB or Grayscale, so: o Rename the PDF to have _archive in the filename, and process it to the DARK archive only. L oad the TIF files to the item online to have the derivative page images created. Review the record for correct aggregations, rights statements, etc. ; update as needed. Check the item to ensure all of the viewers (JPG, JP2, Related Images, a nd Page Turner) are all enabled for the item is done.
