descriptive imageIf you are a regular Bitstreams reader, you know we just love talking about Multispectral Imaging.  Seriously, we can go on and on about it, and we are not the only ones.   This week however we are keeping it short and sweet and sharing a couple before and after images from one of our most … Continue reading Multispectral Imaging Summer Snapshots

Announcing Multispectral Imaging Service, version 1

Tue, 2018-03-06 16:09
descriptive imageAs regular Bitstreams readers know, a cross departmental team within Duke University Libraries has been exploring Multispectral Imaging and its potential to make Duke collections more accessible to researchers in the Duke scholarly community and beyond since 2015. After spending 2017 developing MSI workflows, building expertise, writing documentation, and responding to experimental imaging requests, we … Continue reading Announcing Multispectral Imaging Service, version 1

Institutional multispectral imaging (MSI) survey results

Fri, 2017-12-01 19:13
descriptive imageOver the last year and a half, we’ve blogged quite a bit about our exploration of multispectral imaging (MSI) here at Duke Libraries. We’ve written about the hardware and software that we acquired in 2016 and about our collaboration and training to help us learn how to use this new equipment. We’ve shared examples from … Continue reading Institutional multispectral imaging (MSI) survey results

Multispectral Imaging and Thermofaxes

Mon, 2017-10-16 16:01
Duke University Libraries has successfully used multispectral imaging to make ancient manuscripts more readable, but the same technology can also be employed on modern collection materials.  Over the summer, our multispectral imaging working group teamed up with Rubenstein Library staff to investigate whether advanced imaging techniques could be used to make certain faded photocopies more … Continue reading Multispectral Imaging and Thermofaxes

More MSI Fun: Experimenting with iron gall ink

Fri, 2017-07-21 20:47
descriptive imageSubmitted on behalf of Erin Hammeke For conservators, one of the aspects of having the MSI system that excites us most is being able to visualize and document the effects of the treatments that we perform. Although we are still learning the ropes with our new system, we had a recent opportunity to image some … Continue reading More MSI Fun: Experimenting with iron gall ink

Infrastructure and Multispectral Imaging in the Library

Fri, 2017-06-23 20:27
descriptive imageAs we continue to work on our “standard” full color digitization projects such as Section A and the William Gedney Photograph Collection, both of which are multiyear projects, we are still hard at work with a variety of things related to Multispectral Imaging (MSI).  We have been writing documentation and posting it to our Knowledgebase, … Continue reading Infrastructure and Multispectral Imaging in the Library

Multispectral Imaging: What’s it good for?

Mon, 2017-04-24 13:09
descriptive imageAt the beginning of March, the multispectral imaging working group presented details about the imaging system and the group’s progress so far to other library staff at a First Wednesday event. Representatives from Conservation Services, Data and Visualization Services, the Digital Production Center, the Duke Collaboratory for Classics Computing (DC3) and the Rubenstein Library each … Continue reading Multispectral Imaging: What’s it good for?

Multispectral Imaging Through Collaboration

Thu, 2017-01-19 21:44
descriptive imageI am sure you have all been following the Library’s exploration into Multispectral Imaging (MSI) here on Bitstreams, Preservation Underground and the News & Observer.  Previous posts have detailed our collaboration with R.B. Toth Associates and the Duke Eye Center, the basic process and equipment, and the wide range of departments that could benefit from … Continue reading Multispectral Imaging Through Collaboration

Ducks, Stars, t’s and i’s: The path to MSI

Fri, 2016-10-07 21:35
descriptive imageBack in March I wrote a blog post about the Library exploring Multispectral Imaging (MSI) to see if it was feasible to bring this capability to the Library.  It seems that all the stars have aligned, all the ducks have been put in order, the t’s crossed and the i’s dotted because over the past … Continue reading Ducks, Stars, t’s and i’s: The path to MSI

Multispectral Imaging in the Library

Fri, 2016-03-04 21:38
descriptive image  Over the past 6 months or so the Digital Production Center has been collaborating with Duke Collaboratory for Classics Computing (DC3) and the Conservation Services Department to investigate multispectral imaging capabilities for the Library. Multispectral imaging (MSI) is a mode of image capture that uses a series of narrow band lights of specific frequencies … Continue reading Multispectral Imaging in the Library
