Description: Poster illustrating the workflow used in the University of North Texas (UNT) Digital Projects Unit to digitize large numbers of TRAIL (Technical Report and Image Library) documents. The poster outlines five stages:  "Inventory," in which staff account for items received and route un-cut reports for disbinding before adding them to the scanning queue,  "Scanning," in which regularly-sized pages are scanned on a duplex scanner and fold-out pages are scanned on flatbed or planetary scanners,  "Processing," in which files are deskewed, resized, compressed, rotated, etc., and quality control checks identify errors,  "Metadata," in which the MARC records for the reports are converted into XML and a metadata creator fills in additional fields, and  "Online," in which reports are publicly available on the UNT Digital Library.
