Computer Club Newsletters
This is currently a work in progress to digitize the club’s printed newsletters dating back to the 1990’s.
The project team includes:
Current status, May 2014, is Lon Hosford added all known PDF’s . Maureen Barron has analyzed all the known printed copies against the known PDF copies. Bruce Arnold scanned all the remaining known PDFs.
Next up is copy editing to assure all the meta data and media are on the correct pages. Includes correct publish date, editor for example. Includes assuring the PDF links on the pages open into a new window; some are done and some not.
As the pages are created, then content will be scraped from the newsletter PDF to help make the content searchable both on the web site and on the internet. Team meets briefly at the end of regular meeting to coordinate any activities.
Once completed this page will serve as an index of the popular newsletter.
