High School Yearbook Digitization by OCI Oklahoma Correctional Industries, Oklahoma Department of Corrections
The Project: Free Digitization of High School Yearbooks Partners: Cary Leland at Oklahoma Correctional Industries Karen Ellis, Library Director, Taylor Public Library Diann Fox, School Librarian, Taylor High School Melanie Catuogno, Yearbook Advisor, Taylor High School
But is it free? Really?
Yes, and many libraries in Oklahoma and now Texas have been taking advantage of this free digitization. Still too good to be true?
Oklahoma Correctional Industries is the commercial arm of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections. They do non-destructive scanning of print materials. The free yearbook scanning is their foot in the door—OCI offer other scanning & digitization services for a fee.
So, what do you get for free?
OCI will pay for shipping of the yearbooks. Turnaround time is about 3-4 weeks.
Each page is scanned and saved as a separate jpeg image, at 300 ppi. After scanning, you get a DVD of the scans. (And it’s easy to make more copies)
So, what’s the value in scanning your yearbooks ?
1. Easy access 2. No more fear of razor blades 3. Happier homecomings 4. Record of overlooked history
