Date: March 2012
Creator: Barker, Trista; Berrios, Reyes; Fisher, Sarah Lynn; Krahmer, Ana & Tarver, Hannah

This paper describes and examines the process the DPU implemented to digitize the Cooke County ledger collection; in doing so, it provides insight into the problems one might encounter, as well as recommendations for institutions that may be considering similar digital projects.
