Wake County Images

Sometimes the NCDHC picks up a project right in the middle, or improves an existing collection. This week, I was given a collection of images from Wake County Public Library (WCPL) that have already been digitized. Some of the images had already been uploaded onto a WCPL website that the library could no longer maintain. I was given over 900 files, and had to sort them by type: image, newspaper clipping, and documents. We decided not to do anything with the newspaper clippings, as they were all from Raleigh papers that the NCDHC plans to digitize later. I was then able to use the existing website to find information on the images. I organized the information into metadata that can more easily be standardized and used on the NCDHC site.
