This one-year grant project began July and was completed on December 31, Conceptual illustration of the Digital Lab Notebook where user input information about imaging projects produces Linked Open Data. This project provides practical tools and guidance to cultural heritage and natural science practitioners applying close-range 3D photogrammetry during documentation and materials conservation activities in collections and historic sites.
These tools will provide them the means to collect and manage scientific, quantitatively measurable, 3D digital representations.
Previous efforts in the manual management of this provenance knowledge have mainly focused on the core data of the imaging subject. Together they encourage reuse of digital representations; allow users of the data to understand how they were made, enabling evaluation of reliability; and prepare digital data for long-term archiving.
The project led to the adaptation of two open source software tools.
Waltham by Melissa Mannon
They are now freely downloadable from our Downloads area on this website, where we currently offer RTI and other software. Both of the software tools are based on similar existing tools for use with RTI see Background below and have been reworked to meet the specific needs of photogrammetric image capture. This leverage allows the creation of impactful deliverables within a relatively small budget.
The software tools have associated user guides and are subject to ongoing testing by members of the project team. The initial version is designed to support RTI data.

This tool collects and organizes information that cannot be obtained automatically in software. This includes information about project purposes, the subject of the photographic capture, the people who are part of the project, the institutions or stakeholders involved, and specifics of the camera and lighting configuration.
Documents and web links can also be incorporated into the data. While the camera automatically stores information about the camera settings for each image, it does not collect information about other aspects of the equipment, such as what illumination is used, how the camera is mounted e. After a one-time entry of relevant information, this tool allows users to create templates of their equipment configurations and other frequently used information.
The user selects and combines the appropriate organized information prior to data capture. Preview — Waltham by Melissa Mannon. Join Archivist Melissa Mannon on an exciting journey that begins at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution and travels through the advance of the computer age.
Discover Waltham s history in this impressive and unprecedented pictorial collection, with photographs selected from the Waltham Public Library and other Waltham historical institutions. Separated from Watertown in Join Archivist Melissa Mannon on an exciting journey that begins at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution and travels through the advance of the computer age. Separated from Watertown in , Waltham shed its agricultural roots and went on to become a world-renowned manufacturing center. Entrepreneurs realized the power that could be harnessed from the Charles River and took full advantage of this natural resource.
Jackson, was the first mill in the world to mass-produce cotton cloth from start to finish under one roof. Waltham earned its nickname, Watch City, from the Waltham Watch Company, the largest manufacturer of watches in the world in the nineteenth century. In , Waltham began a third economic boom with the establishment of Raytheon and the electronics industry. Today, Waltham and its neighboring towns on the belt of Route have become one of the country s largest manufacturing centers for computer and electronics equipment.

The Archives also serves as the Huguenot Historical Society's corporate archives, maintaining the Society's business records, publications and memorabilia. Lastly, the Archives seeks to promote the education of all aspects of Huguenot and Walloon history and to a lesser extent, local history. I like how this mission defines its geographic region and then hones in on particular areas of interest. Like many historical society missions, this one is broad, allowing for the collection of virtually anything related to New Paltz.

Such a mission, balancing a wide-ranging view with specificity, will allow the organization to create a collection development plan that zeroes in on the materials that suit their niche. The organization can also create an outreach planning and other materials that tie themselves to the elements outlined here. This kind of mission is a bit wordy, but I like the way that they make sure they cover everything without being excessively wordy.
The thoughts they present here can be bulleted that's how I reorganize a paragraph like this in my head when I read a mission statement to make each statement more poignant.
Burlington Massachusetts Town Archives: The purpose of the archives and records management program is to preserve and protect the town's history and to enable the town to fulfill its legal records management responsibilities. The archives organizes, preserves and provides easy access to records in a variety of media; administers information resources; transfers inactive and permanent records to the Archives; and disposes of obsolete records that do not have long-term value General bylaw 7.
It defines the archives roles to organize, preserve, provide access, administer information, transfer inactive records and dispose of obsolete ones records management. I think the disposal portion of the statement is unique to archives in general though maybe not to municipalities and probably helps stave off controversy about discarding materials. The statement's authority is given more weight by the notation that it is a general bylaw of the town and not "just" an archival mission statement.
