About the Project
NCAD wanted to digitise 12,000 pages of manuscript Student Registers which consisted of more than 130,000 records.

Eneclann’s Role
The images were captured using a Bookeye ® digital array at 300 DPI preservation standard. Access images were then output at 150DPI for use internally and for the internet. Index data capture was carried out by IIM. This material was especially complex as much of it consisted of daily attendance registers, where names had to be captured from signatures. Moreover a significant portion (around 8%) were written using Irish script. The records included 3.5 million characters.
