Digitizing the Menus
This project was made possible through funding from the Nevada State Library and Archives under the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), P.L. 108-91, as amended, through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
The Institute of Museum and Library Services, an independent federal agency that grows and sustains a “Nation of Learners,” because lifelong learning is critical to success.
The selection of the material was performed by Su Kim Chung, Manuscripts Librarian.
Depending on size and condition, materials were scanned using either an Epson Expression 10000X scanner using EPSON Scan Ver. 2.94A scanning software, or a Zeutschel scanner and Omniscan software. The high-resolution (300-600 dpi) uncompressed TIFF image files were then converted into the JPEG2000 format. Master images (high-resolution TIFF files) are archived in the Web and Digitization unit of the Libraries.
