Claude Casey (1912-1999) filled these albums with mementos from his career as a singer, guitarist, songwriter, and actor. The photographs, clippings and ephemera reflect his personal and professional lives. To learn more about Claude Casey, his career and other materials from his collection held by the University of South Carolina Music Library.
Ashlie Conway of the Music Library scanned these materials as color TIFFS at 24-bit/300 ppi on a flatbed Epson Expression 10000 XL Scanner using Silverfast scanning software. Metadata for the collection follows the Western States Best Practices Dublin Core format and was created by the Digital Activities Department in cooperation with Ashlie Conway. JPEGS were created from the TIFFS and loaded with the metadata to CONTENTdm. The TIFFs will be maintained as the archival masters on a SAN server, backed-up to DVD and tape.
