I’m going to be digitizing a lot of sports memorabilia for the next few weeks/months/years and am trying to wrap my head around a few things. While I will do a lot in Lightroom and/or CaptureOne, I need to figure out a way that I can hand back a self-contained set of files that the object owners can see/interact with. It gets even more involved with the idea of exporting items to submit to teams, leagues, or hall of fame orgs.
Products or projects I am aware of so far include Tropy & darktable, and I’ll check out Excire as well. Toss in PhotoMechanic Plus as an option. What else have folks heard of?
Longevity is huge, along with the export with metadata.Re: DAM for archival work?Reply #2 on: August 7, 2023 at 4:19 pm
I’m interested to see what cyme can do – there’s some serious legacy catalogs that I have been dragging my feet on.
To loop everyone in on things I’ve found:
DSpace – https://dspace.lyrasis.org/
Archivematica – https://www.archivematica.org/en/
ICA – AtoM – https://www.ica-atom.org/
Archivematica & Atom are from a single entity, and ICA-AtoM has transioned to AtoM. I love the AtoM name – Access to Memory.
The capture is the fun stuff, it’s the metadata and details that link everything together for others to research from.
I need to write up the process I’m going thru & how it comes out.
One client has a large personal art collection done by a deceased family member – some are huge 6’x6′ pieces. Another has a huge sports memorabilia collection. My hope is the efforts on the sports side will allow me access to other holders of memorabilia & then we get into the fun of who has what in what condition.
