I have some questions/thoughts:
1. What software tools would be used for scanning, and at what DPI?
2. Would some type of OCR be used in coordination with a word
indexing scheme? This would be most valuable for searching through
magazines for a particular keyword
3. If more than one person does the scanning, there needs to be a way
to insure that the scanning quality is consistent throughout.
This is a big project, no doubt about it. More people can cut the
time to completion down proportionally, of course, but if one person
with a document feeder and fast scanner could do this, it would be
best since overall quality would remain the same.
What a potential gold mine of information! Has anyone thought about
doing this with a smaller target CoCo magazine, such as CoCo
Clipboard, Undercolor or some of the other publications of the time?
Even Hot CoCo?
