ABSTRACT ') Project Title: EPHEMERAL CITIES: A model for developing an digital atlas based on three Florida cities Description and Activities: From Gainesville to Key West, a sense of place gives meaning to our lives Your great grandfather bought a citrus grove j(l Eustis; mine worked in the pencil factory near Way Key now Cedar Key. Where we're from, where we're going all revolves around places with names. The social fabric of modern cities reflects the rich mosaic of activities of past inhabitants. Historically, place identity and place attachment have been associated with the development of peoples' attitudes, values, and beliefs The purpose of Ephemeral Cities is to provide an interactive, Web-based model project that encourages citizens of all ages to explore the evolution of their cities. Internet connectivity and relevancy of geographic information are identified factors in ameliorating the prevalent geographic illiteracy found in s,tudents in the U.S. Ephemeral cities is designed with those factors in mind and with a intended long term outcome of creating city-based learning communities that will not only use the atlas, but contribute digital objects to enrich the exploration process for others. Using the latest GIS (geographic information system) functionality, the project will develop digital city atlases using historic and modern map imaging technologies. City directories, newspapers, and other place-related data and objects found in libraries, archives, museums, and agencies will be linked to the maps providing an historic "sense of place. This model project will concentrate on three key Florida cities: Gainesville, the site of the largest state university; Tampa, the West coast hub of commerce and finance; and Key West, a winter haven for tourists. Two snapshots of each city will be 1 developed: one from the mid-1800s and one for the early part of the 201 h century. The partners for this project include five libraries and one cooperative library unit: University of Florida, Florida International University, Alachua County Library District, May Hill Russell Public Library of Monroe County Public Library, University of South Florida Libraries, and the Florida Center for Library Automation; four museums: Alachua County Historic Trust/Matheson Museum, lnc.,Gainesville, FL, Key West Art & Historical Society, Key West, FL, Tampa Bay History Center, Tampa, FL, and the Henry B. Plant Museum, Tampa, FL; and two public records offices: Alachua County Clerk of the Court, and City of Key West. The University of Florida will subcontract with the Florida Center for Instructional technology, University of South Florida to create the educational modules. ... The objectives of this grant are: 1. Develop a scalable project architecture employing geographic information system (GIS) functionality to link city maps, city directories, documents, databases, and images of period cultural objects. The system architecture will permit the integration of additional cities and digital objects as interest in the project develops beyond the original partners. 2. Select 2,500 historical objects each for Gainesville, Tampa, and Key West. Digitize, and create standards compliant images and metadata. 3. Hold a "My Town" event in each of the three cities. During this event, citizens will be encouraged to bring in their own historic period artifacts for digital capture and sharing as part of this project. 4. Create 10 educational modules based on appropriate Florida Sunshine Standards [http://www.firn.edu/doe/menu/sss.htm] and the eighteen National Geography Standards [http://www.ncge.org/publications/tutorial/standards/] for in classrooms, and 5 independent instructional modules for interested citizens. 5. Promote the use of "Ephemeral Cities" and facilitate the development of similar atlases for other Florida cities and for similar efforts in other states. Anticipated result: "Ephemeral Cities" will engage learners of all ages in exploring the historic geographies of cities and comparing them to modern metropolitan areas. The developers envision this as a community based project that will offer extensive collaborative opportunities far beyond the period of the grant and will provide universal Web access to unique historical items held in isolated repositories throughout Florida. As learners use this site, it is expected that they, in tum, may wcint to contribute personal items from their own city experiences to the project. The "My Town" event will encourage citizen contributions and involvement. If widely adopted, Ephemeral cities model will form the basis for a Florida digital city atlas facilitating the development of city-based learning communities throughout the state. The potential for a national city atlas is already developing as many states have digital versions of the Sanborn maps, and map servers are becoming more prevalent in library settings.

NARRATIVE Introduction In the 181 h and 191 h centuries, tragif fires swept through wooden structures dominating many American cities. By the later half of the 191 h century, American insurance companies supported a thriving insurance map business. The most famous of these was created by D.A. Sanborn and became known as the Sanborn National Insurance Diagram Bureau. This company employed surveyors in each state and standardized the map-producing process. Maps were drawn at a scale of 1 inch=50 feet. By the 1930s, the company had surveyed 13,000 towns with populations over 2,000. Rich in structural details, the early maps are considered primary sources of information on the changing character of America's cities. Today, these maps provide valuable historical details to architectural historians, environmentalists, genealogists, economists, urban planners, historians, urban restoration specialists, environmentalists, students, and others. These standardized maps, with a recognized consistency in data representation, serve as the digital baseline for this project, while offering future scalability and interoperability of this model for all Florida cities and for cities across the country. Sanborn maps for Gainesville for 1884 and 1903, for Tampa for 1884 and 1903, and for Key West for 1889 and 1899 will be georectified to provide historic base layers. This will permit associated digitized historic objects to be referenced spatially to sites on the maps. Modern thematic layers of roads, county boundaries, rivers, etc. will create comparative layers of modern city geographies. By manipulating layers, learners will discover the vicissitudes of city development: prominent thoroughfares were renamed, redirected, relocated and/or obliterated and major features such as grist mills, and stables were replaced by schools and hospitals Each of the selected cities is located near a state university library and each of the three academic libraries in collaboration with one or more partners will be responsible for creating a "sense of place" for that city. Three City Partnerships have been formed for this project. The Gainesville Partnership consists of the University of Florida Libraries, Alachua County Historic TrusUMatheson Museum, Inc., Alachua County Clerk of the Court, and Alachua County District Library. The Key West Partnership consists of Florida International University Libraries; the Monroe County Board of Commissioners, Division of Community Services, Library Services; City of Key West; and the Key West Art & Historical Society. The Tampa Partnership consists of the UniveJ:tSity of South Florida Libraries, the Tampa Bay History Center, and the Henry B. Plant Museum. Twenty five hundred digital objects will be created for each city. Intended to capture the city's character at the targeted years, the digital items will include museum artifacts, photographs, postcards, brochures, letters, official records, etc. These items will be drawn from the collections of the partnering institutions. Existing digital collections, e.g., Heritage Collection, Alac1lua County Library District [http://heritage.acld.lib.fl.us/ ], the Ancient Records database, Alachua County Clerk of the Court [http://www.clerk-alachua-fl.org/Archive/default.cfm], and the Florida Heritage Project [http://palmm.fcla.edu/fhp] will also be integrated. Cigar makers, bakers, hat cleaners, and county jailors will again populate the static wood, adobe, and steel buildings rendered on Sanborn maps. National Impact A National Geographic-Roper 2002 Global Geographic Literacy Survey of 56 geographic and current events questions was given to more than 3,000 18to 24-year-olds in Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Sweden and the United States. f'Survey Reveals Geographic Illiteracy," Bijal P. Trivedi, National Geographic Today, November 20, 2002. PRL: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2002/11/1120_021120_ GeoRoperSurvey.html] The findings indicated "about 11 percent of young citizens of the U :S. couldn't even locate the U.S. on a map." A Gainesville Sun article "Young Americans don't know geography," [November 21, 2002] noted "When asked to find 10 specific states on a map of the United States, only California and Texas could be located by a majority of those surveyed." "Several perhaps interrelated factors affected performance-educational experience (including taking a geography course), international travel and language skills, a varied diet of news sources, and Internet use. Americans who reported that they accessed the Internet within the last 30 days scored 65 percent higher than those who did not." f'Survey Results: U.S. Young Adults are Lagging," National Geographic-Roper 2002 Global Geographic Literacy Survey. URL: http://geosurvey nationalgeographic.com/geosurvey/highlights.html] Similar"concerns were raised by the 2001 geography assessment administered by the National Assessment of Educational Progress to approximately 25,000 students at grades 4, 8, and 12 in the nation. Its report indicated that "only 21 percent of fourth-graders, 30 percent of eighth-graders, and 25 percent of twelfth-graders performed at or above the Proficient level for their respective grades. These levels are identified by NAGS [National Assessment Governing Board] as those at which all students should perform." fThe Nation's Report Card: Geography 2001," June 2002, by Andrew R. Weiss, Anthony D. Lutkus, Barbara S. Hildebrant, and Matthew S. Johnson. URL: 1

http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/pubs/main2001/2002484.asp] AJreview of the statistics indicates that the majority of students are functioning at a Basic level that "denotes partial masterY df the knowledge and skills that are fundamental for proficient work at a given grade." Interestingly enough, Internet use was also found to be a significant factor in positively influencing geographic literacy. I In commenting on the National Geographic-Roper survey, Nick Bayon, senior vice president for international research at RoperASW, said "When geography and life intersect, people pay attention," and Roger Downs, head of the geography department at Pennsylvania State University in State College, added "Wouldn't it be nice if parents also read atlases to their children?" Columnist Bill Maxwell writes "Your home tells you where you are and who you are" and echoes bioregionalist Wendell Berry reflections "Our identify ... is defined to a large degree by our sense of place, our sense of home .... [ A lingering sense of place," by Bill Maxwell. Gainesville Sun Opinions, Wednesday, December 11, 2002, p.13A] The creation of "Ephemeral Cities" is intended to engage independent learners of all ages in discovering a "sense of place" for Florida cities. While exploring the changing urban geographies of Florida's cities, learners will become aware of the ephemeral nature of cities, understand that cities reflect the mosaic of cultural backgrounds of their inhabitants, and explore how place identity affects their own identities. By focusing on Roger Down's "intersection of geography and life" and using the Internet as the vehicle of communication, this project intends to reinvigorate interest in Florida urban geography and to serve as a model for similar efforts across the state and country. At least one of the educational modules will draw users beyond Florida's borders to explore the homelands, cities, and origins of Florida's 1 ath and 1 century urban dwellers and the livelihoods they brought to Florida. Adaptability The model proposed in this project can be adapted by cities throughout Florida and the country. All components of the "Ephemeral Cities" project will be documented and made available freely over the Web. These will include the technical specifications for hardware/software architecture, digitization plan, metadata and metadata tools, educational modules, and promotional pieces. .... Design Because geographic literacy is correlateapositively to Internet use and geographic information system (GIS) technologies provide an interactive approach to geography, the developers believe that this project has the potential to engage learners of all ages in map use and by extension geography related activities. By integrating digital versions of historic information sources: newspapers, city directories, and images, with modern metropolitan GIS layers for roads, county lines, etc. unlimited opportunities for exploring cityscapes are created. (Attachment A shows a sample of the geographic ipformation integration that will be developed in this project.) Detailed Management Plan Product 1. Develop the "Ephemeral City" architecture including hardware and software components, integrating existing historical djgital collections, and the Web interfaces to the project .. Responsible parties: GIS Coordinator, University of Florida Lib(aries; Staff of the Digital Library Center and the Systems Department, University of Florida Libraries; Staff of the Florida Center for Library Automation; all partners offering digital collections on remote servers a. Define, purchase, and install needed software and hardware for map server and creation of appropriate vector layers The GIS Coordinator, UF Libraries will use mapping tools available with ERDAS Imagine 8.5 software to identify points on the six sets of selected Sanborn maps that can be aligned to a real-world coordinate system; thereby creating historic map images that can be used in a GIS system. All map images and associated thematic layers such as roads, county boundaries, etc. will be served from the UF map server. Under the supervision of the GIS coordinator, GIS technicians will be hired to create the appropriate site-specific linkages on each of the Sanborns selected for this project. Lookup tables of the coordinates will be developed for use in populating descriptive metadata associated with the digital objects. Additionally the South Florida Water Management District is paying for the early maps for Miami and Ft. Lauderdale to be georectified and added to the project. (Please see project proposal and letter in Attachment G.) 2

b. Program functional interfaces between maps, textual databases, and digital objects. Integrating the functionality of the itlas components will be the responsibility of the System Programmer who will be hired with grant monies. Under the direct supervision of the Pl, and in collaboration with other partner members, the System programmer will develop the specifications for the necessary databases and file structures and the scripting/programming needed to connect remote digital object collections and databases to the underlying map layer. The system architecture will integrate the functionality of: 1) UF Map Server holding Sanborn images and the current thematic layer data; 2) Full text city directories, newspaper articles, and textual objects residing on the textclass server at FCLA and digital images of still graphics including photographs, postcards and museum objects residing on the imageclass server at FCLA; 3) Ancient records are on a server at the Alachua County Clerk of the Court Office; and 4) the Heritage Collection of photographs, Alachua County Library District served from its own server. c. Develop an online ingesting mechanism that will facilitate remote submittal of historical digital objects and metadata to the project.The System Programmer will develop a publicly available online template for submitting historical digital objects and accompanying metadata. Based on Dublin Core fields, this template will be tested during the current grant and refine;d as necessary. It will be the ingestion mechanism for permitting public participation in building this project. It will be used during the "My Townn day event will be held at each of the three cities. (See description of "My Town" day under Product #4) d. Create the Web interface for the project. The Web interfaces will be designed cooperatively by the Florida Center for Library Automation, the System Programmer, the GIS Coordinator, and the staff at the Digital Library Center .... Product 2. Select, digitize, and create standards-compliant historical digital objects with appropriate metadata and/or markup. Responsible parties: University of South Florida, Florida International University, University of Florida and all partners and the Florida Center for Library Automation. a. Hold a preliminary planning meeting of all partners to establish communication lines, review participant obligations, and establish work deadlines and reporting. At the beginning of the project, all key partners will meet in Gainesville for a two-day workshop to review grant activities, responsibilities, and timelines. Grant funding for this meeting will include travel and a per diem state rate for lodging and food. This meeting will be hosted and facilitated by the University of Florida in conjunction with the Florida Center for Library Automation. b. Define selection criteria for digitization of still graphics, textual materials, and museum objects. Review scanning and metadata standards used in the public university cooperative digitization project "PAL MM." At the initial meeting, selection criteria will be defined, scanning and metadata guidelines and standards reviewed, and production schedules established. The PALMM standards are based on current best practices and national interoperability standards compliant with IMLS and NSF initiatives. (PALMM digitization and metadata standards and guidelines are available at http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/standres.html} The specific digitization plan for this project may be found in Attachment E. These standards have been used for all digital objects contributed to the Florida Heritage project. By June 2003, metadata for digitized texts of a previously funded IMLS grant "Linking Florida's Natural Heritage" will be available for Open Archive harvesting. FCLA has developed an MXF Metadata client that creates Dublin Core/OAI compliant records. This client will be used in the Eph.emera/ Cities project. Metadata elements include subject schemes for education and man-made cultural objects. Cultural object keywords will be selected from Blackaby, Greeno and The (American Association for State and Local History) Nomenclature Committee's The Revised Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging: A Revised and Expanded Version of Robert G. Chenhall's System for Classifying Man-Made Objects. Metadata from curriculum supporting sites such as AskERIC [http://ericir.syr eduNirtual/Lessons/lpform.shtml], Federal Resources for Educational Excellence [http://www ed.gov/free/index.html], the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse [http://www.enc.org/], Florida Online Encyclopedia, and the Florida Geographic Alliance will also be reviewed. 3

c. Digitization of selected objects A summary list of the collections that will contribute items for digitization can be found in Attachment B Although each of the academic libraries has flat bed scanners, all partnering institutions do not. Grant funding will supply each partnership with one digital camera system, one computer workstation, and one flatbed scanner to be used on grant activities. One Project Technician will be hired for each partnership and will travel between agencies to prepare digital objects as needed. Each of the three partnerships will be responsible for providing 1000 graphical objects, e.g., photographs, postcards; 250 items or 1,000 pages of textual materials, e.g., brochures, pamphlets, books; and between 30-50 digital images of cultural period objects. The Digital Library Center, University of Florida Library will digitize two sets of Sanborn maps for each city. It will also outsource the digitization, text conversion, and markup for the newspaper runs and city directories that are selected and the 250 textual items selected by each partnership. ByteManagers and iArchives are the two vendors of choice for full text conversion and markup. They have established performance records including the Utah newspaper project. Both were asked to provide sample work for a set of newspapers, the results showed 100% accuracy in text conversion and their prices are among the lowest quoted. The digital images and full text created will be served and archived at the Florida Center for Library Automation. c. Serving and archiving digital objects The Florida Center for Library Automation will serve derivative images and metadata from appropriate textclass and imageclass servers. Master uncompressed TIFF images will be archived and migrated as technologies evolve. Product 3: Create and test 15 educational modules. Responsible parties: Florida Center for Instructional Technology, University of South Florida a. The Florida Center for Instructional Technologies will develop and pilot 15 educational modules The Florida Center for Instructional Technology has created an extensive educational site "Florida Then & Now" [http://fcit.coedu.usf.edu/florida/lessons/le""ssons.htm] for Florida's social studies teachers. Fully developed educational modules include: a reading passage, teacher notes, reading strategy, student questions, and student activity sheets. Educational modules for Ephemeral Cities will follow the same structure, although pre and posttests will be included. The specifications for design and content are set forth in the Partnership Statement {in this application) between the University of Florida Libraries and the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. b. Complete digital object metadata with instructional attribute fields Each metadata record for historic digital objects will include data on lesson plans, themes, and learning standards for Florida. These attributes will be filled in as the objects are incorporated into formalized educational modules. Product 4: Hold a "My Town" event in each of the three cities to encourage citizen participation in creating Ephemeral City digital collections. Responsible parties: All city partnerships Each city partnership will be resP,onsible for planning a "My Town" event at an appropriate city site, preferably the public library or historical museum, where citizens will be asked to bring an historical artifact to digitally contribute to the project. This event will occur in the spring. All of the partnership members will be responsible for scheduling, eq uipment setup, and manning the event. Non-paid volunteers may be recruited as needed from the community. Metadata and digital image capture will occur at the event and be submitted to FCLA for serving and archiving as part of the Ephemeral Cities project. Equipment purchased through this grant will be used at the event. The Alachua County Historic Trust/Matheson Museum, Inc., Gainesville has agreed to create publicity pieces that can be adapted to each city event as needed. Product 5: Promoting the use of "Ephemeral Cities" Responsible parties: Grant manager at UF in conjunction with the Florida Center for Instructional Technology, University of South Florida and all partners 4

The grant manager in conjunction with the Florida Center for 'Instructional Technology will identify state educational networks, mailing lists and newsletters that will receive of this project. In addition, local GIS organizations will be alerted to the availability of this resource. The Florida Geographic Alliance will be contacted and asked to disseminate project information to Florida's geography teachers CONTRIBUTIONS Salary cost sharing by key partners is detailed in the budget. Because the interest in developing this project is wide spread, several institutions are providing various resources gratis. All of these institutions have signed partnership agreements as part of this packet. Their contributions are listed below. The total value is estimated at $30,000. Alachua County Clerk of the Court James Powell, Ancient Records Manager, selects, digitizes and makes available 600 documents from the Clerk's public records; assists the system programmer in remote launch of search URLs as part of this project. Alachua County District Library (ACDL) Nance Lempinen-Leedy;Project Coordinator and Adult Services Manager of the District, will coordinate the project related aspects at the Headquarters Library, supervise other library staff affiliated with the project, and liaison with project partners. Bobby Ruth Powell, Project Librarian, will select 200 items to include in the project, research images, write image 1 description, and assign descriptors and subject headings. She will work with the Project Scanner, Project Cataloger and report to the ACDL Coordinator. Virginia Fettes, Project Cataloger, will catalog the 200 items. Jeff Dreisin, Project Scanner, will scan and quality control the images of the 200 items following established procedures. Monroe County Public Library, Key West, Florida Anne Layton Rice, Library Administrator and onsite Project Coordinator, will provide local coordination of item selection for digitization. 2000 pages of textual materials and 215 still graphics will be made available and scanned. She will coordinate the selection of items from tl;ie two other Key West partners: City of Key West and the Key West Art and Historical Society. Henry B. Plant Museum, Tampa, Florida Cynthia Gandee, Director, will select items from their collections for digitization and provide necessary information to create the metadata. She will provide onsite space for scanning and/or digital camera capture. Tampa Bay History Center, Tampa, Florida Robert S. Blount, Ill, President and CEO, will select items from their collections for digitization and provide information to create the metadata. He will provide onsite space for scanning and/or digital camera capture. Key West Museum of Art and History, Key West, Florida Claudia Pennington, Executive Director, oversees staff members to select artifacts, historic photographs and archival materials for the Ephemeral Cities project. Norman Aberle, runs data base search to identify objects in KWAHS collection from the 1889-1899 period. He then locates the objects (in our museums or in archival storage) for the imaging process. Brewster Chamberlin, registrar, prepares archival background information to assure historical accuracy on each of the selected items. Prior to this project, the Universi!Y of Florida has created high-resolution scaleable color images of the 6,500 Florida Sanborn maps created between the 1860s and 1923 and has purchased an appropriate map server ($5,335) that will serve the thematic layers including the Sanborn images associated with this project. The State University Libraries Digital Projects Planning Committee that oversees the development of collaborative university library digital projects [PALMM] has allocated $12,000 for the production of the city directory database associated with this grant 5

PERSONNEL Project personnel include lead project coordinators for each city partnership. Each lead coordinator is at a major academic library and possesses experience in collaborative digital projects. Supporting staff at each academic library has the requisite knowledge and skills to perform all functions associated with digitization and metadata creation. All are participating in the PALMM (Publication of Archival, Library, and Museum Materials)(http://palmm.fcla.edu) initiative started by the Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) and have adapted common best practice standards for digitization and metadata creation. Currently there are fourteen active PALMM projects, covering topics ranging from herbarium specimens to juvenile literature. The Florida Heritage Collection (http://palmm.fcla.edu/fh/) is a collaborative project of all public university libraries. The Florida Center for Library Automation serves the academic libraries by managing their collections of digital texts, images and other media and will s,erve the same role for this project. The city partners include museums, city records offices, and libraries. Each participating organization will have a project coordinator. These individuals are records managers, museum directors/curators and librarians with expertise in curating their specific collections. The GIS Coordinator for the project has a Master's Degree from the University of Florida's Civil Engineering Geomatics program (Survey and Mapping) and 14 years of experience managing GIS and remote sensing projects. Technical support for the project will come from the Florida Center for Library Automation and the Systems at the University of Florida Libraries. These computer groups have extensive experience in database development and maintenance, Web interfaces, and serving of digital materials. (Attachment C contains resumes of key personnel.) PROJECT EVALUATION Ephemeral Cities will use the IMLS Outcomes Based Evaluation system. A variety of assessment and evaluation tools will be used: some will quantify use, others will provide a quality review of particular procedures and other aspects of the project with the intent to make the final project usable, extensible for current and future partners, and of value to students, educators, and the public. Final focus groups will be conducted by each partnership to determine the experiences of the participants. ,. (Attachment D contains the Evaluation Plan.) DISSEMINATION The grant team will disseminate information on this project using the following avenues: 1) create and distribute notices of the project to appropriate electronic mailing lists, 2) present the project at appropriate IMLS and digital library project meetings including state, national, museum, archive, and historical society conferences, 3) publish articles in the professional journals and newsletters of library, museum, historical and archival societies, and 4) develop hardcopy publicity to be sent to Florida historical societies and libraries encouraging their adoption of a city to help build Florida's historical city atlas beyond the granting period. 5) The Operations Manager and the developer of the education modules will develop and distribute introductory material targeted at K-12 te achers in Florida. SUSTAINABILITY Many states have already digitized Sanborn maps for their cities. Because these maps provide a standard historical base for all U.S. cities, the system architecture designed in the Ephemeral cities project can be adopted by any city/state that is interested in building a city digital atlas. Because the system is designed to encourage citizen contributions, the project developers believe that city learning communities will grow over time. The "My Town" event is expected to initiate a community awareness and interest in the project. In Florida, all public state universities participate in the Florida Heritage project (http://palm.fcla.edu/fh/): a digital collection of texts and still images on Florida's history, culture, arts, literature, and natural environments. The Florida Heritage project is funded on a yearly basis and many of the digitized items will be suitable for linking in Ephemeral Cities. Because the South Florida Water Management District is contributing monies to expand the project to include early maps of Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, both the University of South Florida and Florida International University have agreed to 6

spend their 2003/04 Florida Heritage funding ($7,500 each) to continue the building of the Ephemeral Cities digital collections. Florida International University has already indicated an? interest in selecting items for digitization from the Wolfsonian collections (http://www.wolfsonian.fiu.edu/index.html) to further the project.

Begun primarily as a depository for Florida historical material, the department has grown and diversified in the years following its inception. One of the department's primary goals is to develop an exhaustive collection of Florida publications. To date, over seven thousand monographs and pamphlets have been cataloged for the department's Floridiana Collection. Special Collections is perhaps best known for its Burgert Brothers and Robertson & Fresh photo archives chronicling the growth ofTampa from the 1890s through the 1960s. These images are now digitized and available to the public through the USF Special Collections website along with complete descriptive metadata.

Attachment E: Digitization Plan Digitization Plan Imaging: Analog (Microphotography) Rationale for Use: For text-based materials only: University of Florida policy acts to ensure preservation in both digital and analog formats, the latter still recognized by the archives and library preservation community as the most sound method of preservation, both for text-image quality and longevity. The majority of textual resources targeted by this project have already been microfilmed. The number of textual resources to be microfilmed is small. Agency Responsible: University of Florida. Libraries. Preservation Department. Reprographics Unit http:/fweb.uflib.ufl.edu/preserve/repro/index.html Production Procedure: Items scheduled for microfilming are received by the Preservation Department and queued for microfilm. Queuing includes reel programming to ensure optimal use of film and for subsequent digitization from film. Queued items are microfilmed. The Reprographic Unit observes all applicable National (AllM, ANSI, and NISO) and International (ISO) Standards as outlined by the Research Libraries Group (RLG) in its Preservation Microfilming Handbook. Imaged film is processed/develope1l in-house, again to standards as outlined by RLG. Quality Control Review Procedure: Developed master m;igative films are inspected in-house by trained quality control staff who will inspect each image, establishing image clarity, conformance to standards for light balance, image density, etc. Imperfections and errors are re-imaged, reprocessed and ultrasonically spliced into master reels, again in conformance with standards and RLG. Duplication & Archiving: Reels passing inspection are sent to the University of Florida's archival storage facility (National Underground Storage, Boyers, PA), where they will be maintained in accord with standards and RLG. There they will be periodically inspected on a schedule of one inspection not less than once every six years and sampled during inspection per U.S. military standard for this process. Master negatives will be duplicated and duplicates used, first in microfilm-digitization, and subsequently for deployment to the originating institution. Imaging: Museum Objects Agency Responsible: Partner Groups and Institutions, with training from the University of Florida, Digital Library Center's chief digital camera specialist. Production Procedure: Objects will be selected for either copy-stand or tripod imaging. The more three dimensional objects will be slated for tripod imaging while others will be imaged on copy-stands.

PAGE 98

Attachment E: Digitization Plan Lights will be balanced for each object, in-field, to ensure even lighting and glare elimination. Objects will imaged (maximum/RAW or 4536 x 3024 pixel use, light balance set appropriate to light source, etc.). Aperture, etc. shall be set for optimal image capture and may differ from object to object. Auto-Focus and ISO 100 film speed equivalence will be established as a project default; however the camera operator's judgment and skill may allow manual focus, film speed, aperture, etc. Framing shall be aesthetically pleasing, to include an area around the object. The view that best represents the object will be imaged. Creation of additional images, at alternate angles/views, is at the discretion of the partner institution; but additional images shall be beyond the scope of this project, shall use the institution's funds and shall not result in delays. Imaged objects shall be transferred either by immediate transfer/fire-wire (IEEE 1394) or by delayed transfer/Compact Flash card reader. Quality Control Review Procedure: Each image shall be reviewed using Adobe Photoshop 7 .O+ in both browse (thumbnail) and full displays. Raw images will be imported either by the new Adobe Photoshop plug-in for digital cameras or by Kodak supplied transfer software. File naming shall be compliant with the holding institution's accession scheme. Images shall be logged or base metadata created to further identify the object. For minimally trained staff, default procedure shall require accept or reject based on unprocessed image qualities (excluding skew and crop). Rejected images shall be re imaged with adjustment in the capture environment, most commonly in the lighting or positioning of the object. For more highly trained staff, Photoshop image processing tools may be employed conservatively. The histogram of...the image may be adjusted to eliminate noise and other imaging artifacts. Image modification methods shall be logged per the FCLA MXF client's implementation of the NISO draft "Data Dictionary: Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images" (cf, http://www.niso.org/committees/committee_au.html). See also, Metadata and Archiving & Deployment, below. Imaging: Graphics & Flat Objects, From Source Agency Responsible: Partner Groups and Institutions Production Procedure: Images queued into tracking systems for digitization. At this time, basic (Dublin Core) information is recorded, an entity identifier assigned, and digital resolution determined in accord with Cornell University guidelines for Digital Imaging for Libraries and Archives, updated at: http://www.library.cornell.edu/preservation/tutorial/contents.html Items scanned in the ITU TIFF (v.6) format, uncompressed, 24-bit color, sRGB color space, and digital resolution as determined (cf, immediately preceding step), at 100% original scale. (Cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/tiff.html) Monitors are periodically calibrated. Room lighting is indirect, soft light. Furniture and walls are neutral tones Scanners are calibrated upon start-up each day, using Kodak 060 (AllM IT8.7/1 and IT8.7/2 standard) color text target. Additionally, to monitor performance during operations, the Kodak 013 Color Separation Guide and Greyscafe targets are scanned, evaluated and stored for each workstation. Scanners that evidence deterioration are given maintenance or replaced. Items saved in an appropriate directory using the entity ID. Multi-image entities are assign sequential numbers in accord with PALMM's general file naming guidelines, cf, http:l/palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/filenaming.html

PAGE 99

Attachment E: Digitization Plan Quality Control Review Procedure: Images shall be reviewed using Adobe Photoshop 7.0+ in both browse {thumbnail} and full displays. Every image is subjected to quality control by trained quality control staff; new scan technic i ans' work is reviewed 100% full-image display review du r ing initial months of training and slowly drops back to 10% full-image & 100% thumbnail review as confidence grows. Images of insufficient quality shall be directed to re-imaging with corrected parameters. Photoshop image processing tools may be employed conservatively. The histogram of the image may be adjusted to eliminate noise and other imaging artifacts Image modification methods shall be logged per the FCLA MXF client's implementation of the NISO draft "Data Dictionary: Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images" {cf, http://www niso org/committees/committee_au.html). Certified images will be derived into access versions: Archival & Textual resources: JPEG: no more than 15% compression; dpi consistent with that of original (interpolated, bi-cubic), 24-bit color, min. 630 pixels wide. Cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/jpeg.html Graphic Resources & maps: SID : max. 5 levels of compression; server-side distribution software, cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/makesid.html Additionally, JPEG Thumbails: no more than 15% compression; dpi consistent with that of original (interpolated, bi-cubic), 24-bit color, min. 200 pixels wide for maps or 100 pixels wide for other graphic resources. See also, Metadata and Archiving & Deployment, below. Text Conversion & Mark-Up ... Vendor: A partnership of ByteManagers {http://www.bytemanagers.com/) and iArchives (http://www.iarchives.com/index jsp ). Production Procedure: Imaged (rasterized) documents or microfilms are shipped to ByteManagers/iArchives via FTP Any microfilms will be digitized using Mekel of Sunrise high-speed microfilm scanners, balanced for the density(-ies) of a given reel of microfilm. Page images (raster files) will be created for each page pages microfilmed two pages per frame (2-up) will be split into separate images which will be returned with text. Illustration segmented for extraction as "figures", extracted, named and stored for use in mark-up Images zoned (pages, segments, Jines) for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) OCR using advanced systems, utilizing 6 OCR engines to produce the machine equivalent of double-keying, including alternate word spellings, verification by dictionaries. etc., and generating ASCII text ASCII text automatically marked-up with the FCLA TEl-DTD (local subset; cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/fcla TextClassdtd. txt) in XML "Figures" inserted (referenced) into ASCII text Raster images and marked-up text will be quality controlled with selective inspection Verified product FTPed to the University of Florida Quality Control Review Procedure: FTPed product received by the UF Digital Library Center's Mark-up Unit Tags and links to page images inspected, inserted or corrected

Attachment E: Digitization Plan Acknowledgements of holding institutions inserted Transmission metadata wrapped around tagged text Metadata package transmitted via FTP to FCLA for archiving and deployment. Meta data Agency Responsible: Partner Groups and Institutions Production Procedure: Following image creation and quality control, images are drawn into the PALMM MXF (metadata transmission) client, cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/palmmmxf.html Specialized tagging (in MXF and TEI), will indicate temporal and geographic location. Geographic information will reference databases (e.g., Geographic Names Information Service) to fix longitude and latitude for supplemental load into the University of Florida's ERDAS-based Geographic Information Service (GIS) server The MXF client is currently under revision for full compliance with the defacto U.S. national standard, Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS), cf, http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/ The MXF client generates MD-5 Checksums for all digital masters and derivative versions; the checksums will be encapsulated with other metadata. MXF encapsulated metadata and images (masters, derivatives and additional derivative [e.g., pdf] creation instructions) are transmitted via FTP to FCLA for archiving and deployment ... Archiving & Deployment (Internet Distribution) Agency Responsible: "' Florida Center for Library Automation Production Procedure: Received metadata, images and other files are loaded by FCLA into targeted servers: Archival, textual, and multi-image pamphlet resources will be loaded into the XPAT-based textual collections server Graphics, maps and similar image resources will be loaded into the XPAT-based visual collections server. For additional information about XPAT, see: http://dlxs.org/products/xpat.html Metadata is processed, as necessary, either to append information (e.g., Persistent Universal Resource Locator, PURL) to an existing catalog record or to create a catalog record with PURL from metadata. Catalogers at the contributing institution will be notified of PURL creation and record ryiodification; they will inspect cataloging and make final adjustments, then submit the record to OCLC in most cases. N.B. Some partners, a very few, will load and archive their metadata and images locally. These institutions will submit their records/metadata and URLs for PURL creation and load into the PALMM catalog for this project. Loaded metadata and files become available through the PALMM Florida Heritage Collection (http://palmm.fcla.edu/fh/) and may be queried through: A bibliographic search system (currently NOTIS, to be replaced with ExLibris Aleph beginning July 2003), or

Attachment E: Digitization Plan The text and image-metadata search system (XPAT-based Textual Collections and XPAT-based Visual Collections) Cataloging, and TIFF masters are processed into FCLA's archival systems, which will monitor file characteristics for obsolescence, schedule inspections and migrations, etc. Archival storage is off-line, dark storage on tape at the North East Regional Data Center, an administrative division (Title I Center) of the University of Florida. Quality Control Review Procedure: Digitization staff at contributing institutions inspect loaded resources for any final defect. Defects are reported to FCLA and corrected, as most appropriate, by either the contributing institution or FCLA. GIS Solution Agency Responsible: University of Florida. libraries. Geographic Information Systems. Production Procedure: Metadata/Cataloging, including PURLs is received by the University of Florida's Digital Library Center (DLC) Data received is processed through search engines running against the UF indexes to the Sanborn Maps of Florida, the USGS Geographic Names Information Service (GNIS), the Florida historic place name dictionary, the Federal Information Processing System, etc. to establish location information {longitude/latitude) Where information is not available, DLC staff will research the location to fix a point (and report the information to fhe Florida Historic Place Name dictionary project) Data is also processed to extract associated personal/corporate/event names, running against Library of Congress name authority files to regularize form of name. Names will be regularized, as necessary, using Library of Congress NACO (name authority) guidelines for automated processing Where conflict/choice within the authority file arises, DLC staff working in collaboration with the Libraries' catalogers will determine the correct entry. Where information is not available, DLC staff will accept the form of name in regularized form Data is also processed to extract associated temporal information/dates, which will be regularized in ISO date format. Place name, place location, feature information, temporal data, and personal/corporate/ event names will be loaded into the Geographic Information System (GIS) GIS query interface will search the PALMM Florida Heritage Collection catalog {http://palmm.fcla.edu/fh/)

ABSTRACT

Project Title: EPHEMERAL CITIES: A model for developing an historical digital atlas based on three Florida cities

Description and Activities: From Gainesville to Key West, a sense of place gives meaning to our lives. Your great
grandfather bought a citrus grove ~p Eustis; mine worked in the pencil factory near Way Key now Cedar Key. Where
we're from, where we're going all revolves around places with names. The social fabric of modern cities reflects the rich
mosaic of activities of past inhabitants. Historically, place identity and place attachment have been associated with the
development of peoples' attitudes, values, and beliefs.

The purpose of Ephemeral Cities is to provide an interactive, Web-based model project that encourages citizens of all
ages to explore the evolution of their cities. Internet connectivity and relevancy of geographic information are identified
factors in ameliorating the prevalent geographic illiteracy found in students in the U.S. Ephemeral cities is designed with
those factors in mind and with a intended long term outcome of creating city-based learning communities that will not only
use the atlas, but contribute digital objects to enrich the exploration process for others.

Using the latest GIS (geographic information system) functionality, the project will develop digital city atlases using historic
and modern map imaging technologies. City directories, newspapers, and other place-related data and objects found in
libraries, archives, museums, and agencies will be linked to the maps providing an historic "sense of place." This model
project will concentrate on three key Florida cities: Gainesville, the site of the largest state university; Tampa, the West
coast hub of commerce and finance; and Key West, a winter haven for tourists. Two snapshots of each city will be I
developed: one from the mid-1800s and one for the early part of the 20th century. The partners for this project include
five libraries and one cooperative library unit: University of Florida, Florida International University, Alachua County Library
District, May Hill Russell Public Library of Monroe County Public Library, University of South Florida Libraries, and the
Florida Center for Library Automation; four museums: Alachua County Historic Trust/Matheson Museum, Inc.,Gainesville,
FL, Key West Art & Historical Society, Key West, FL, Tampa Bay History Center, Tampa, FL, and the Henry B. Plant
Museum, Tampa, FL; and two public records offices: Alachua County Clerk of the Court, and City of Key West. The
University of Florida will subcontract with the Florida Center for Instructional technology, University of South Florida to
create the educational modules.

The objectives of this grant are:

1. Develop a scalable project architecture employing geographic information system (GIS) functionality to link city
maps, city directories, documents, databases, and images of period cultural objects. The system architecture will
permit the integration of additional cities and digital objects as interest in the project develops beyond the original
partners.

2. Select 2,500 historical objects each for Gainesville, Tampa, and Key West. Digitize, and create standards-
compliant images and metadata.

3. Hold a "My Town" event in each of the three cities. During this event, citizens will be encouraged to bring in their
own historic period artifacts for digital capture and sharing as part of this project.

4. Create 10 educational modules based on appropriate Florida Sunshine Standards
[httpJ//www.firn.edu/doe/menu/sss.htm] and the eighteen National Geography Standards
[http://www.ncge.org/publications/tutorial/standards/] for use in classrooms, and 5 independent instructional
modules for interested citizens.

5. Promote the use of "Ephemeral Cities" and facilitate the development of similar atlases for other Florida cities and
for similar efforts in other states.

Anticipated result: "Ephemeral Cities" will engage learners of all ages in exploring the historic geographies of cities and
comparing them to modern metropolitan areas. The developers envision this as a community based project that will offer
extensive collaborative opportunities far beyond the period of the grant and will provide universal Web access to unique
historical items held in isolated repositories throughout Florida. As learners use this site, it is expected that they, in turn,
may want to contribute personal items from their own city experiences to the project. The "My Town" event will encourage
citizen contributions and involvement. If widely adopted, Ephemeral cities model will form the basis for a Florida digital
city atlas facilitating the development of city-based learning communities throughout the state. The potential for a national
city atlas is already developing as many states have digital versions of the Sanborn maps, and map servers are becoming
more prevalent in library settings.






NARRATIVE


Introduction

In the 18th and 19th centuries, tragic fires swept through wooden structures dominating many American cities. By the later
half of the 19th century, American insurance companies supported a thriving insurance map business. The most famous
of these was created by D.A. Sanborn and became known as the Sanborn National Insurance Diagram Bureau. This
company employed surveyors in each state and standardized the map-producing process. Maps were drawn at a scale of
1 inch=50 feet. By the 1930s, the company had surveyed 13,000 towns with populations over 2,000. Rich in structural
details, the early maps are considered primary sources of information on the changing character of America's cities.
Today, these maps provide valuable historical details to architectural historians, environmentalists, genealogists,
economists, urban planners, historians, urban restoration specialists, environmentalists, students, and others. These
standardized maps, with a recognized consistency in data representation, serve as the digital baseline for this project,
while offering future scalability and interoperability of this model for all Florida cities and for cities across the country.

Sanborn maps for Gainesville for 1884 and 1903, for Tampa for 1884 and 1903, and for Key West for 1889 and 1899 will
be georectified to provide historic base layers. This will permit associated digitized historic objects to be referenced
spatially to sites on the maps. Modern thematic layers of roads, county boundaries, rivers, etc. will create comparative
layers of modern city geographies. By manipulating layers, learners will discover the vicissitudes of city development:
prominent thoroughfares were renamed, redirected, relocated and/or obliterated and major features such as foundries,
grist mills, and stables were replaced by schools and hospitals.

Each of the selected cities is located near a state university library and each of the three academic libraries in
collaboration with one or more partners will be responsible for creating a "sense of place" for that city. Three City
Partnerships have been formed for this project. The Gainesville Partnership consists of the University of Florida Libraries,
Alachua County Historic Trust/Matheson Museum, Inc., Alachua County Clerk of the Court, and Alachua County District
Library. The Key West Partnership consists of Florida International University Libraries; the Monroe County Board of
Commissioners, Division of Community Services, Library Services; City of Key West; and the Key West Art & Historical
Society. The Tampa Partnership consists of the University of South Florida Libraries, the Tampa Bay History Center, and
the Henry B. Plant Museum. Twenty five hundred digital objects will be created for each city. Intended to capture the
city's character at the targeted years, the digital items will include museum artifacts, photographs, postcards, brochures,
letters, official records, etc. These items will be drawn from the collections of the partnering institutions. Existing digital
collections, e.g., Heritage Collection, Aladhua County Library District [http://heritage.acld.lib.fl.us/ ], the Ancient Records
database, Alachua County Clerk of the Court [http://www.clerk-alachua-fl.org/Archive/default.cfm], and the Florida
Heritage Project [http://palmm.fcla.edu/fhp] will also be integrated. Cigar makers, bakers, hat cleaners, and county jailors
will again populate the static wood, adobe, and steel buildings rendered on Sanborn maps.

National Impact

A National Geographic-Roper 2002 Global Geographic Literacy Survey of 56 geographic and current events questions
was given to more than 3,000 18- to 24-year-olds in Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Mexico,
Sweden and the United States. ["Survey Reveals Geographic Illiteracy," Bijal P. Trivedi, National Geographic Today,
November 20, 2002. URL: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2002/11/1120_021120_GeoRoperSurvey.html]

The findings indicated "about 11 percent of young citizens of the U.S. couldn't even locate the U.S. on a map." A
Gainesville Sun article "Young Americans don't know geography," [November 21, 2002 ] noted "When asked to find 10
specific states on a map of the United States, only California and Texas could be located by a majority of those surveyed."

"Several perhaps interrelated factors affected performance-educational experience (including taking a geography
course), international travel and language skills, a varied diet of news sources, and Internet use. Americans who reported
that they accessed the Internet within the last 30 days scored 65 percent higher than those who did not." ['Survey Results:
U.S. Young Adults are Lagging," National Geographic-Roper 2002 Global Geographic Literacy Survey. URL:
http://geosurvey.nationalgeographic.com/geosurvey/highlights.html

Similar concerns were raised by the 2001 geography assessment administered by the National Assessment of
Educational Progress to approximately 25,000 students at grades 4, 8, and 12 in the nation. Its report indicated that "only
21 percent of fourth-graders, 30 percent of eighth-graders, and 25 percent of twelfth-graders performed at or above the
Proficient level for their respective grades. These levels are identified by NAGB [National Assessment Governing Board]
as those at which all students should perform." ["The Nation's Report Card: Geography 2001," June 2002, by
Andrew R. Weiss, Anthony D. Lutkus, Barbara S. Hildebrant, and Matthew S. Johnson. URL:







http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/pubs/main2001/2002484.asp] AMreview of the statistics indicates that the majority of
students are functioning at a Basic level that "denotes partial master, df the knowledge and skills that are fundamental for
proficient work at a given grade." Interestingly enough, Internet use was also found to be a significant factor in positively
influencing geographic literacy.

In commenting on the National Geographic-Roper survey, Nick Boyon, senior vice president for international research at
RoperASW, said "When geography and life intersect, people pay attention," and Roger Downs, head of the geography
department at Pennsylvania State University in State College, added "Wouldn't it be nice if parents also read atlases to
their children?" Columnist Bill Maxwell writes "Your home tells you where you are and who you are" and echoes
bioregionalist Wendell Berry reflections "Our identify... is defined to a large degree by our sense of place, our sense of
home...." ["A lingering sense of place," by Bill Maxwell. Gainesville Sun Opinions, Wednesday, December 11, 2002,
p.13A]

The creation of "Ephemeral Cities" is intended to engage independent learners of all ages in discovering a "sense of
place" for Florida cities. While exploring the changing urban geographies of Florida's cities, learners will become aware
of the ephemeral nature of cities, understand that cities reflect the mosaic of cultural backgrounds of their inhabitants, and
explore how place identity affects their own identities. By focusing on Roger Down's "intersection of geography and life"
and using the Internet as the vehicle of communication, this project intends to reinvigorate interest in Florida urban
geography and to serve as a model for similar efforts across the state and country. At least one of the educational
modules will draw users beyond Florida's borders to explore the homelands, cities, and origins of Florida's 18th and 19th
century urban dwellers and the livelihoods they brought to Florida.

Adaptability

The model proposed in this project can be adapted by cities throughout Florida and the country.

All components of the "Ephemeral Cities" project will be documented and made available freely over the Web. These will
include the technical specifications for hardware/software architecture, digitization plan, metadata and metadata tools,
educational modules, and promotional pieces.

Design

Because geographic literacy is correlated'positively to Internet use and geographic information system (GIS) technologies
provide an interactive approach to geography, the developers believe that this project has the potential to engage learners
of all ages in map use and by extension geography related activities. By integrating digital versions of historic information
sources: newspapers, city directories, and images, with modern metropolitan GIS layers for roads, county lines, etc.
unlimited opportunities for exploring cityscapes are created. (Attachment A shows a sample of the geographic information
integration that will be developed in this project.)

Detailed Management Plan

Product 1. Develop the "Ephemeral City" architecture including hardware and software components, integrating
existing historical digital collections, and the Web interfaces to the project.

Responsible parties: GIS Coordinator, University of Florida Libraries; Staff of the Digital Library Center and the
Systems Department, University of Florida Libraries; Staff of the Florida Center for Library Automation; all partners
offering digital collections on remote servers

a. Define, purchase, and install needed software and hardware for map server and creation of appropriate
vector layers

The GIS Coordinator, UF Libraries will use mapping tools available with ERDAS Imagine 8.5 software to identify points on
the six sets of selected Sanborn maps that can be aligned to a real-world coordinate system; thereby creating historic
map images that can be used in a GIS system. All map images and associated thematic layers such as roads, county
boundaries, etc. will be served from the UF map server. Under the supervision of the GIS coordinator, GIS technicians
will be hired to create the appropriate site-specific linkages on each of the Sanborns selected for this project. Lookup
tables of the coordinates will be developed for use in populating descriptive metadata associated with the digital objects.
Additionally the South Florida Water Management District is paying for the early maps for Miami and Ft. Lauderdale to be
georectified and added to the project. (Please see project proposal and letter in Attachment G.)









b. Program functional interfaces between maps, textual databases, and digital objects.

Integrating the functionality of the gtlas components will be the responsibility of the System Programmer who will be hired
with grant monies. Under the direct supervision of the PI, and in collaboration with other partner members, the System
programmer will develop the specifications for the necessary databases and file structures and the scripting/programming
needed to connect remote digital object collections and databases to the underlying map layer.

The system architecture will integrate the functionality of: 1) UF Map Server holding Sanborn images and the current
thematic layer data; 2) Full text city directories, newspaper articles, and textual objects residing on the textclass server at
FCLA and digital images of still graphics including photographs, postcards and museum objects residing on the
imageclass server at FCLA; 3) Ancient records are on a server at the Alachua County Clerk of the Court Office; and 4) the
Heritage Collection of photographs, Alachua County Library District served from its own server.

c. Develop an online ingesting mechanism that will facilitate remote submittal of historical digital objects and
metadata to the project.-

The System Programmer will develop a publicly available online template for submitting historical digital objects and
accompanying metadata. Based on Dublin Core fields, this template will be tested during the current grant and refined as
necessary. It will be the ingestion mechanism for permitting public participation in building this project. It will be used
during the "My Town" day event will be held at each of the three cities. (See description of "My Town" day under Product
#4)

d. Create the Web interface for the project.

The Web interfaces will be designed cooperatively by the Florida Center for Library Automation, the System Programmer,
the GIS Coordinator, and the staff at the Digital Library Center.

Product 2. Select, digitize, and create standards-compliant historical digital objects with appropriate metadata
andlor markup.
Responsible parties: University of South Florida, Florida International University, University of Florida and all partners
and the Florida Center for Library Automation.

a. Hold a preliminary planning meeting of all partners to establish communication lines, review participant
obligations, and establish work deadlines and reporting.

At the beginning of the project, all key partners will meet in Gainesville for a two-day workshop to review grant activities,
responsibilities, and timelines. Grant funding for this meeting will include travel and a per diem state rate for lodging and
food. This meeting will be hosted and facilitated by the University of Florida in conjunction with the Florida Center for
Library Automation.

b. Define selection criteria for digitization of still graphics, textual materials, and museum objects. Review
scanning and metadata standards used in the public university cooperative digitization project "PALMM."

At the initial meeting, selection criteria will be defined, scanning and metadata guidelines and standards reviewed, and
production schedules established. The PALMM standards are based on current best practices and national
interoperability standards compliant with IMLS and NSF initiatives. (PALMM digitization and metadata standards and
guidelines are available at http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/standres.html) The specific digitization plan for this project
may be found in Attachment E. These standards have been used for all digital objects contributed to the Florida Heritage
project. By June 2003, metadata for digitized texts of a previously funded IMLS grant "Linking Florida's Natural Heritage"
will be available for Open Archive harvesting.
FCLA has developed an MXF Metadata client that creates Dublin Core/OAl compliant records. This client will be used in
the Ephemeral Cities project. Metadata elements include subject schemes for education and man-made cultural objects.
Cultural object keywords will be selected from Blackaby, Greeno and The (American Association for State and Local
History) Nomenclature Committee's The Revised Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging: A Revised and Expanded
Version of Robert G. Chenhall's System for Classifying Man-Made Objects. Metadata from curriculum supporting sites
such as AskERIC [http://ericir.syr.eduNirtual/Lessons/lpform.shtml], Federal Resources for Educational Excellence
[http://www.ed.gov/free/index.html], the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse [http://www.enc.org/ Florida Online
Encyclopedia, and the Florida Geographic Alliance will also be reviewed.








c. Digitization of selected objects


A summary list of the collections that will contribute items for digitization can be found in Attachment B.

Although each of the academic libraries has flat bed scanners, all partnering institutions do not. Grant funding will supply
each partnership with one digital camera system, one computer workstation, and one flatbed scanner to be used on grant
activities. One Project Technician will be hired for each partnership and will travel between agencies to prepare digital
objects as needed.
Each of the three partnerships will be responsible for providing 1000 graphical objects, e.g., photographs, postcards; 250
items or 1,000 pages of textual materials, e.g., brochures, pamphlets, books; and between 30-50 digital images of cultural
period objects.

The Digital Library Center, University of Florida Library will digitize two sets of Sanborn maps for each city. It will also
outsource the digitization, text conversion, and markup for the newspaper runs and city directories that are selected and
the 250 textual items selected by each partnership. ByteManagers and iArchives are the two vendors of choice for full
text conversion and markup. They have established performance records including the Utah newspaper project. Both
were asked to provide sample work for a set of newspapers, the results showed 100% accuracy in text conversion and
their prices are among the lowest quoted. The digital images and full text created will be served and archived at the
Florida Center for Library Automation.

c. Serving and archiving digital objects

The Florida Center for Library Automation will serve derivative images and metadata from appropriate textclass and
imageclass servers. Master uncompressed TIFF images will be archived and migrated as technologies evolve.

Product 3: Create and test 15 educational modules.
Responsible parties: Florida Center for Instructional Technology, University of South Florida

a. The Florida Center for Instructional Technologies will develop and pilot 15 educational modules

The Florida Center for Instructional Technology has created an extensive educational site "Florida Then & Now"
[http://fcit.coedu.usf.edu/florida/lessons/le'ssons.htm] for Florida's social studies teachers. Fully developed educational
modules include: a reading passage, teacher notes, reading strategy, student questions, and student activity sheets.
Educational modules for Ephemeral Cities will follow the same structure, although pre and posttests will be included.
The specifications for design and content are set forth in the Partnership Statement (in this application) between the
University of Florida Libraries and the Florida Center for Instructional Technology.

b. Complete digital object metadata with instructional attribute fields

Each metadata record for historic digital objects will include data on lesson plans, themes, and learning standards for
Florida. These attributes will be filled in as the objects are incorporated into formalized educational modules.

Product 4: Hold a "My Town" event in each of the three cities to encourage citizen participation in creating
Ephemeral City digital collections.
Responsible parties: All city partnerships

Each city partnership will be responsible for planning a "My Town" event at an appropriate city site, preferably the public .
library or historical museum, where citizens will be asked to bring an historical artifact to digitally contribute to the project.
This event will occur in the spring. All of the partnership members will be responsible for scheduling, eq uipment setup,
and manning the event. Non-paid volunteers may be recruited as needed from the community. Metadata and digital
image capture will occur at the event and be submitted to FCLA for serving and archiving as part of the Ephemeral Cities
project. Equipment purchased through this grant will be used at the event. The Alachua County Historic Trust/Matheson
Museum, Inc., Gainesville has agreed to create publicity pieces that can be adapted to each city event as needed.

Product 5: Promoting the use of "Ephemeral Cities"
Responsible parties: Grant manager at UF in conjunction with the Florida Center for Instructional Technology, University
of South Florida and all partners







The grant manager in conjunction with the Florida Center for 'lstructional Technology will identify state
educational networks, mailing lists and newsletters that will receive notification of this project. In addition, local GIS
organizations will be alerted to the availability of this resource. The Florida Geographic Alliance will be contacted and
asked to disseminate project information to Florida's geography teachers.

Key West Museum of Art and History, Key West, Florida
Claudia Pennington, Executive Director, oversees staff members to select artifacts, historic photographs and archival
materials for the Ephemeral Cities project.
Norman Aberle, Curator, runs data base search to identify objects in KWAHS collection from the 1889-1899 period. He
then locates the objects (in our museums or in archival storage) for the imaging process.
Brewster Chamberlin, registrar, prepares archival background information to assure historical accuracy on each of the
selected items.

Prior to this project, the University of Florida has created high-resolution scaleable color images of the 6,500 Florida
Sanborn maps created between the 1860s and 1923 and has purchased an appropriate map server ($5,335) that will
serve the thematic layers including the Sanborn images associated with this project. The State University Libraries Digital
Projects Planning Committee that oversees the development of collaborative university library digital projects [PALMM]
has allocated $12,000 for the production of the city directory database associated with this grant








PERSONNEL


Project personnel include lead project coordinators for each city partnership. Each lead coordinator is at a major
academic library and possesses extensive experience in collaborative digital projects. Supporting staff at each academic
library has the requisite knowledge and skills to perform all functions associated with digitization and metadata creation.
All are participating in the PALMM (Publication of Archival, Library, and Museum Materials)(http://palmm.fcla.edu)
initiative started by the Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) and have adapted common best practice standards
for digitization and metadata creation. Currently there are fourteen active PALMM projects, covering topics ranging from
herbarium specimens to juvenile literature. The Florida Heritage Collection (http://palmm.fcla.edu/fh/) is a collaborative
project of all public university libraries. The Florida Center for Library Automation serves the academic libraries by
managing their collections of digital texts, images and other media and will serve the same role for this project.

The city partners include museums, city records offices, and libraries. Each participating organization will have a project
coordinator. These individuals are records managers, museum directors/curators and librarians with expertise in curating
their specific collections.

The GIS Coordinator for the project has a Master's Degree from the University of Florida's Civil Engineering Geomatics
program (Survey and Mapping) and 14 years of experience managing GIS and remote sensing projects.

Technical support for the project will come from the Florida Center for Library Automation and the Systems Department at
the University of Florida Libraries. These computer groups have extensive experience in database development and
maintenance, Web interfaces, and serving of digital materials.

PROJECT EVALUATION

Ephemeral Cities will use the IMLS Outcomes Based Evaluation system. A variety of assessment and evaluation tools
will be used: some will quantify use, others will provide a quality review of particular procedures and other aspects of the
project with the intent to make the final project usable, extensible for current and future partners, and of value to students,
educators, and the public. Final focus groups will be conducted by each partnership to determine the experiences of the
participants.

(Attachment D contains the Evaluation Plan.)

DISSEMINATION

The grant team will disseminate information on this project using the following avenues: 1) create and distribute notices of
the project to appropriate electronic mailing lists, 2) present the project at appropriate IMLS and digital library project
meetings including state, national, museum, archive, and historical society conferences, 3) publish articles in the
professional journals and newsletters of library, museum, historical and archival societies, and 4) develop hardcopy
publicity to be sent to Florida historical societies and libraries encouraging their adoption of a city to help build Florida's
historical city atlas beyond the granting period. 5) The Operations Manager and the developer of the education modules
will develop and distribute introductory material targeted at K-12 teachers in Florida.

SUSTAINABILITY

Many states have already digitized Sanborn maps for their cities. Because these maps provide a standard historical base
for all U.S. cities, the system architecture designed in the Ephemeral cities project can be adopted by any city/state that
is interested in building a city digital atlas. Because the system is designed to encourage citizen contributions, the project
developers believe that city learning communities will grow over time. The "My Town" event is expected to initiate a
community awareness and interest in the project.

In Florida, all public state universities participate in the Florida Heritage project (http://palm.fcla.edu/fh/): a digital collection
of texts and still images on Florida's history, culture, arts, literature, and natural environments. The Florida Heritage
project is funded on a yearly basis and many of the digitized items will be suitable for linking in Ephemeral Cities.
Because the South Florida Water Management District is contributing monies to expand the project to include early maps
of Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, both the University of South Florida and Florida International University have agreed to






spend their 2003/04 Florida Heritage funding ($7,500 each) to continue the building of the Ephemeral Cities digital
collections. Florida International University has already indicated an'irterest in selecting items for digitization from the
Wolfsonian collections (http://www.wolfsonian.fiu.edu/index.html) to further the project.

Dear Mr. Kruczek:

An original and one copy of the facilities and administrative (F&A)
cost rate agreement are enclosed. This Agreement reflects an
understanding reached between your organization and a member of my
staff concerning the rate (s) that may be used to support your claim
for F&A costs on grants and contracts with the Federal Government.

In addition the following is agreed between the University and this
office:

We have approved a change to the University's equipment
capitalization policy from $500 to $1,000, starting July 1,
2000.

Equipment and supplies cost must be claimed in accordance with
the capitalization threshold and useful life assumptions
reflected in the institution's financial statements.

Expenditures for equipment exceeding $999 must be claimed by
use allowance or depreciation procedures, unless that
equipment is specifically approved by an awarding agency (or
permitted by expanded/supplemental authority granted by the
awarding agency) as a direct cost.
Grant proposal and contract budget submissions must be
consistent with equipment capitalization threshold stipulated
on the Rate Agreement.
Unamortized amounts will be written-off over five years
(July 1, 2000 to June 30, 2005). No further use allowance or
depreciation may be claimed on existing equipment valued
between $500 and $999 on any future F&A cost proposal. The
effect of unamortized amounts related to the above assets has
been reflected in this Rate Agreement.
Raising equipment threshold does not alter accountability
responsibilities (including acquisition and safeguarding of
supplies)






Mr. John P. Kruzcek Page 2
December 29, 2000 ,


Must follow property management standards for equipment
covered by new capitalization policy

Department will exercise its disposition rights for
-equipment with a fair marker value $1,000 or more [45 CFR
74.34(g) and 92.32(e)].

To indicate your concurrence with the understanding cited above,
please have the original of this letter, in the space provided
below, and the original of the Agreement, signed by a duly
authorized representative of your organization and return them to
me, retaining the copies for your files. We will reproduce and
distribute the Agreement to the appropriate awarding organizations
of the Federal Government for their use.

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has requested that we
reach an agreement with each institution on the components of the
published F&A cost rates. The attached form is provided for that
purpose. Please sign these forms and return them with the original
agreement.

A F&A cost proposal, together with the required supporting
information, are required to substantiate your claim for F&A costs
under grants and contracts awarded by the Federal Government.
Therefore, your next proposal, based on actual costs for the fiscal
year ending June 30, 2004, is due in our office by December 31,
2004.

Sincerely,


Charles J. eed

Gentlemen:

In a ruling dated July 7, 1961, it was held that you are not exempt
from Federal income tax under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue
Code of 1954 as an organization described in section S01(c)(3) of
the Code. On July 27, 1961, you were granted an exter.sion of time
to October 10, 1961, within which to file a protest to our ruling.

In view of Public Law 87-370, 87th Congress, H.R. 4317, passed by
the Congress and signed on October 4, 1961 by the President of the
United States, making the provisions of section 403(b) of the Code
applicable to "an educational institution (as defined in section
151(e)(L))," of which the employer is "a State, a political subdivi-
sion of a State, or an agency or instrumentality of any one or more
of the foregoing", it appears that your purpose in filing an applica-
tion for exemption has been served, and no further action is conten-
plated by this office.

A review of our records discloses that in a ruling dated February 12,
1945, it was held that you are an instrumentality of the State of
Florida. As s-h vynu = &nt *ubeet to Federal income tax and are
not rm-ir-id to file Federal income tax returns, In a letter dated
April 7, 1953, you were informed that the ruling of December 12, 1945
remains in effect. This ruling is affirmed at this time.

If you have any further inquiries in this matter, it is suggested that
you take them up with your District Director of Internal Revenue, who
is being furnished a copy of this letter.
Very truly yours,

Mission: The mission of the Archives Division is to preserve and make available the
legal history of the people of Alachua County. The division seeks to achieve this goal
through the preservation of the extant records, the indexing and cataloging of those
records, and through the process of digitizing records to make them available via remote
access. The aspect of the division regarding Public Records is regulated by the Florida
Public Records Law, Florida Administrative Code, Rules of Court, Advisory Opinions,
and specific inclusion within statutory law. Oversight of all regulations regarding Public
Records is through the Department of State, Division of Library and Information
Services, Bureau of Archives and Records Management.

Service Area: The Archives Division serves anyone seeking information about the legal
history of the county. We regularly provide information to attorneys, law enforcement
agencies, the courts, federal, state and local agencies, as well as ordinary citizens seeking

Level of Service: The Division has a continuing program of digitizing, indexing and
transcribing historical records. The Ancient Records Coordinator has developed a
dedicated group of online volunteers that index and transcribe records that have been

on indexing Marriage Records, Probate Records, and Deeds, since through these records
family history is most often traced.
The Division also researches and locates stored court files, dockets, indices, and other
records of legal actions for all of the parties listed in the Service Area.

Organizational Profile: Florida International University Libraries

The Libraries serve as primary information centers for students, faculty, and staff at
"Miami's public research university"-Florida International University (FIU). As part of the
ten-campus university system of Florida, FIU Libraries work cooperatively with the state
university libraries (SUL) and the Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) to "serve the
citizens of Florida" and publish scholarly digital collections and indexes of historical
significance under the Publication of Archival, Library & Museum Materials umbrella
(PALMM). This work includes cooperative production of guidelines and procedures for
digitization, technical processing, and website design for all PALMM projects.

Digital library projects relevant to the students, research community, and general citizens
of south Florida are of particular interest to the FIU Libraries. The Urban & Regional section of
the Government Documents Department at FIU manages the selection and digitization of local
historical materials and coordinates project processes with partner institutions across the State.
The Cataloging Department at FIU Libraries creates standards-compliant metadata and
cataloging records to share in state, national, and international union catalogs.










ORGANIZATIONAL PROFILE
MAY HILL RUSSELL PUBLIC LIBRARY
KEY WEST, FLORIDA

The Florida Keys, located at the southern tip of the state, are an elongated, arching chain of nearly 822 low-

lying islands, over 120 miles in length, connected by a single overseas highway. The county seat, Key West,

was founded in 1822 and is the "Southernmost" city in the continental U.S. ..


From the Key West Chamber of Commerce website: "The island's proximity i.

to Cuba and the Caribbean has molded its history, and continues to influence K Wt

its current culture. It has been host to New England sailors, Spanishrtesy of Clean Fda Keysnc

conquistadors, Bahamian salvagers, and Cuban shipwrights. History buffs can spend countless hours learning

about the island where real estate titles issue from the King of Spain, unique architecture that dates back to the

mid-eighteen hundreds, and Civil and Spanish American war memorabilia abound."


The Monroe County Public Library system is a branch of the county's Community Services division. The

Library's mission is to provide the resources, services and environment for patrons to pursue their business,

educational and recreational interests/needs. Every Monroe County library (five, total) provides children's

programming, full reference services, community outreach projects, public lectures of local interest, and

electronic resources. The May Hill Russell Public Library in Key West, founded in 1892, is South Florida's

oldest public library. Providing 2,500 service hours per year, the staff of 9.75 FTEs serve over 20,000

registered users and 30,000 monthly visits.

Organization Profile: Florida Center for Library Automation


The Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) was established in 1985 to provide
technology support to the state university libraries in their mission of providing resources
for learning and scholarship. FCLA is administratively part of the University of Florida,
but exists to serve all ten public universities: Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton,
Florida International University in Miami, Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers,
the University of Central Florida in Orlando, the University of South Florida in Tampa,
the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, the University of West Florida in
Pensacola, Florida State University and Florida A & M University in Tallahassee, and the
University of Florida in Gainesville. FCLA directly serves the library staff of the ten
universities (960 full time staff, plus students and part-time employees) and indirectly
serves the more than 200,000 students and 15,000 faculty of the university system. The
catalogs and information systems developed and run by FCLA are also available to the
756,000 members of the community college system, as well as to any interested
individual, with or without academic affiliation. FTE staff at FCLA includes 30
professionals including 10 librarians and 15 programmers experienced in library
applications. The online library catalogs run by FCLA are heavily used, servicing more
than 1.3 million searches a month.

Most recently, FCLA has assisted academic libraries in managing their collections of
digital text, images and other media. FCLA initiated the PALMM (Publication of
Archival, Library and Museum Materials) program to help make library materials
available on the Internet to anyone with a Web browser. Currently there are fourteen
active PALMM projects, covering topics ranging from herbarium specimens to juvenile
literature. The Florida Heritage Collection (http://palmm.fcla.edu/fh/) is a collaborative
project of all public university libraries. Important texts and still images on Florida's
history, culture, arts, literature, and natural environment are digitized and the images and
associated metadata are sent to FCLA. FCLA loads the images on its own computer
servers and provides the software applications that allow users to search metadata records
and display the item.

Recent grant administrative experience within FCLA includes a 2002 IMLS grant,
"Central Digital Archiving Facility," a 2001 LSTA grant, "Enhanced Access to Special
Collections in the Libraries of Florida's State Universities," and collaborative LSTA
grants with the University of Florida ("From the air: the photographic record of Florida's
Lands") and Florida International University ("Milemarkers: Linking Keys History").

Priscilla Caplan, Assistant Director for Digital Library Services will supervise the work
done for the Florida Cities project. Her staff includes both the image manager and the
Web interface designer.

Attachment E: Digitization Plan


Digitization Plan




Imaging: Analog (Microphotography)

Rationale for Use:
SFor text-based materials only: University of Florida policy acts to ensure preservation in
both digital and analog formats, the latter still recognized by the archives and library
preservation community as the most sound method of preservation, both for text-image
quality and longevity. The majority of textual resources targeted by this project have
already been microfilmed. The number of textual resources to be microfilmed is small.
Agency Responsible:
University of Florida. Libraries. Preservation Department. Reprographics Unit
http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/preserve/repro/index.html
Production Procedure:
Items scheduled for microfilming are received by the Preservation Department and
queued for microfilm. Queuing includes reel programming to ensure optimal use of film
and for subsequent digitization from film.
Queued items are microfilmed. The Reprographic Unit observes all applicable National
(AIIM, ANSI, and NISO) and International (ISO) Standards as outlined by the Research
Libraries Group (RLG) in its Preservation Microfilming Handbook.
Imaged film is processed/developeld in-house, again to standards as outlined by RLG.
Quality Control Review Procedure:
Developed master negative films are inspected in-house by trained quality control staff
who will inspect each image, establishing image clarity, conformance to standards for
light balance, image density, etc.
Imperfections and errors are re-imaged, reprocessed and ultrasonically spliced into
master reels, again in conformance with standards and RLG.
Duplication & Archiving:
Reels passing inspection are sent to the University of Florida's archival storage facility
(National Underground Storage, Boyers, PA), where they will be maintained in accord
with standards and RLG. There they will be periodically inspected on a schedule of
one inspection not less than once every six years and sampled during inspection per
U.S. military standard for this process.
Master negatives will be duplicated and duplicates used, first in microfilm-digitization,
and subsequently for deployment to the originating institution.

Imaging: Museum Objects

Agency Responsible:
Partner Groups and Institutions, with training from the University of Florida, Digital
Library Center's chief digital camera specialist.
Production Procedure:
Objects will be selected for either copy-stand or tripod imaging. The more three
dimensional objects will be slated for tripod imaging while others will be imaged on
copy-stands.






Attachment E: Digitization Plan


Lights will be balanced for each object, in-field, to ensure even lighting and glare
elimination.
Objects will be imaged (maximum/RAW or 4536 x 3024 pixel use, light balance set
appropriate to light source, etc.). Aperture, etc. shall be set for optimal image capture
and may differ from object to object. Auto-Focus and ISO 100 film speed equivalence
will be established as a project default; however the camera operator's judgment and
skill may allow manual focus, film speed, aperture, etc. Framing shall be aesthetically
pleasing, to include an area around the object. The view that best represents the
object will be imaged. Creation of additional images, at alternate angles/views, is at the
discretion of the partner institution; but additional images shall be beyond the scope of
this project, shall use the institution's funds and shall not result in delays.
Imaged objects shall be transferred either by immediate transfer/fire-wire (IEEE 1394)
or by delayed transfer/Compact Flash card reader.
Quality Control Review Procedure:
Each image shall be reviewed using Adobe Photoshop 7.0+ in both browse (thumbnail)
and full displays. Raw images will be imported either by the new Adobe Photoshop
plug-in for digital cameras or by Kodak supplied transfer software.
File naming shall be compliant with the holding institution's accession scheme. Images
shall be logged or base metadata created to further identify the object.
For minimally trained staff, default procedure shall require accept or reject based on
unprocessed image qualities (excluding skew and crop). Rejected images shall be re-
imaged with adjustment in the capture environment, most commonly in the lighting or
positioning of the object.
For more highly trained staff, Photoshop image processing tools may be employed
conservatively. The histogram ofthe image may be adjusted to eliminate noise and
other imaging artifacts. Image modification methods shall be logged per the FCLA
MXF client's implementation of the NISO draft "Data Dictionary: Technical Metadata for
Digital Still Images" (cf, http:llwww.niso.org/committees/committee_au.html).
See also, Metadata and Archiving & Deployment, below.

Imaging: Graphics & Flat Objects, From Source

Agency Responsible:
Partner Groups and Institutions
Production Procedure:
Images queued into tracking systems for digitization. At this time, basic (Dublin Core)
information is recorded, an entity identifier assigned, and digital resolution determined
in accord with Cornell University guidelines for Digital Imaging for Libraries and
Archives, updated at: http://www.library.cornell.edu/preservation/tutorial/contents.html
Items scanned in the ITU TIFF (v.6) format, uncompressed, 24-bit color, sRGB color-
space, and digital resolution as determined (cf, immediately preceding step), at 100%
original scale. (Cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/tiff.html)
Monitors are periodically calibrated. Room lighting is indirect, soft light. Furniture
and walls are neutral tones
Scanners are calibrated upon start-up each day, using Kodak Q60 (AIIM IT8.7/1
and IT8.7/2 standard) color text target. Additionally, to monitor performance during
operations, the Kodak Q13 Color Separation Guide and Greyscale targets are
scanned, evaluated and stored for each workstation. Scanners that evidence
deterioration are given maintenance or replaced.
Items saved in an appropriate directory using the entity ID. Multi-image entities are
assign sequential numbers in accord with PALMM's general file naming guidelines, cf,
http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/filenaming.html






Attachment E: Digitization Plan


Quality Control Review Procedure:
Images shall be reviewed using Adobe Photoshop 7.0+ in both browse (thumbnail) and
full displays. '
Every image is subjected to quality control by trained quality control staff; new scan
technicians' work is reviewed 100% full-image display review during initial months of
training and slowly drops back to 10% full-image & 100% thumbnail review as
confidence grows. Images of insufficient quality shall be directed to re-imaging with
corrected parameters.
Photoshop image processing tools may be employed conservatively. The histogram of
the image may be adjusted to eliminate noise and other imaging artifacts. Image
modification methods shall be logged per the FCLA MXF client's implementation of the
NISO draft "Data Dictionary: Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images" (cf,
http://www.niso.org/committees/committee_au.html).
Certified images will be derived into access versions:
Archival & Textual resources: JPEG: no more than 15% compression; dpi
consistent with that of original (interpolated, bi-cubic), 24-bit color, min. 630 pixels
wide. Cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/jpeg.html
Graphic Resources & maps: SID: max. 5 levels of compression; server-side
distribution software, cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/makesid.html
Additionally, JPEG Thumbails: no more than 15% compression; dpi consistent with
that of original (interpolated, bi-cubic), 24-bit color, min. 200 pixels wide for maps or
100 pixels wide for other graphic resources.

Metadata

Agency Responsible:
Partner Groups and Institutions
Production Procedure:
Following image creation and quality control, images are drawn into the PALMM MXF
(metadata transmission) client, cf, http://palmm.fcla.edu/strucmeta/palmmmxf.html
Specialized tagging (in MXF and TEl), will indicate temporal and geographic
location. Geographic information will reference databases (e.g., Geographic
Names Information Service) to fix longitude and latitude for supplemental load into
the University of Florida's ERDAS-based Geographic Information Service (GIS)
server
The MXF client is currently under revision for full compliance with the defacto U.S.
national standard, Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS), cf,
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mets/
The MXF client generates MD-5 Checksums for all digital masters and derivative
versions; the checksums will be encapsulated with other metadata.
MXF encapsulated metadata and images (masters, derivatives and additional
derivative [e.g., pdf] creation instructions) are transmitted via FTP to FCLA for archiving
and deployment

Archiving & Deployment (Internet Distribution)

Agency Responsible: *
Florida Center for Library Automation
Production Procedure:
Received metadata, images and other files are loaded by FCLA into targeted servers:
Archival, textual, and multi-image pamphlet resources will be loaded into the
XPAT-based textual collections server
Graphics, maps and similar image resources will be loaded into the XPAT-based
visual collections server.
For additional information about XPAT, see: http://dlxs.org/products/xpat.html
Metadata is processed, as necessary, either to append information (e.g., Persistent
Universal Resource Locator, PURL) to an existing catalog record or to create a catalog
record with PURL from metadata.
Catalogers at the contributing institution will be notified of PURL creation and
record modification; they will inspect cataloging and make final adjustments, then
submit the record to OCLC in most cases.
N.B. Some partners, a very few, will load and archive their metadata and images
locally. These institutions will submit their records/metadata and URLs for PURL
creation and load into the PALMM catalog for this project.
Loaded metadata and files become available through the PALMM Florida Heritage
Collection (http://palmm.fcla.edu/fh/) and may be queried through:
A bibliographic search system (currently NOTIS, to be replaced with ExLibris Aleph
beginning July 2003), or
