The goal of this project is to catalog and digitize each of
the 1,780 slides within the Claire Holt collection. Microsoft Excel
was selected as the application most suited to cataloguing requirements.
After researching options available for creating and maintaining
a widely-accessible virtual collection, Luna
Imagings Insight® browsing software was selected
as the most appropriate way to present the Claire Holt images over
the Internet. Users will be able to view and search through images,
create virtual exhibitions and conduct efficient research from their
own desks, wherever they may reside. In the near future, the Insight®
browser will also permit cross-collection searching, thus allowing
users to compare Claire Holt images and associated cataloguing data
with images in other collections across the country and the world.
The Claire Holt Project is funded
by a gift from Allen Boorstein '47.
