Description
This website is designed to show the variations and similarities in digital prints made with different processes, different materials, and at different times. By focussing on one image, the enlarged area of a human eye, in each print, the characteristic qualities of different process-material-printer combinations can be examined and compared to each other.

All of the photomicrographs found on this site were taken from the prints in my Digital Print Sample Collection, which currently comprises 279 different prints. Each print is made from the same digital file in precisely the same size.

Description
The Weissman Preservation Center, Harvard Library is pleased to announce that ACORN (A COnservation Records Network) is now available as open source code. ACORN is a workflow management system and database for preservation documentation to be used by conservators of artistic and historic materials. It is a web-based tool that is particularly valuable for keeping track of preservation activities for multiple repositories or clients. ACORN was designed and developed by the Weissman Preservation Center in collaboration with Library Technology Services at Harvard University.

ACORN can perform multiple tasks:

– Registrarial/tracking system for objects entering and leaving a conservation lab or other preservation space.

– Depository for treatment documentation: written and visual, embedded and linked. Data can be shared and accessed by conservation, registrarial, and curatorial units.

– Tracking system for preservation work and/or conservation activities. This may include activities such as emergency response, quick assessments, quick repair or other treatment-related activities that do not have a full proposal.

– Facilitates statistics gathering through a built-in search engine. Statistics queries may include, for example, amount of treatment hours by person, project, repository, or statistics by work type.

As a web-based system, ACORN allows users to access the data at various locations and is a sustainable paperless system. All data is stored locally, either on your personal or institution’s network.

Information about ACORN can be found on the Harvard Library Preservation Services website: http://library.harvard.edu/preservation/acorn

ACORN is available on GitHub. https://github.com/harvard-library/acorn/wiki It can be deployed and customized by software developers familiar with the LAMP software stack (Linux, Apache, MYSQL, and PHP.) Once set up it is easy to use and customize.
