The Chung Collection contains thousands of photographs and slides, many of which we have already uploaded to CONTENTdm and are available online through the Chung Collection website. While we continue to upload new items, we are also doing a little bit of file maintenance and upgrading on the existing files, also known as the “glamorous part of digitization”.
The interesting part about this process is that as we chip away at the file swapping we have the opportunity to look back at a number of the photographs and there is quite a variety! The photographs come from a number of different sources so the subjects vary from local to around the world, from family portraits to the Egyptian Pyramids.
Here’s a selection of photographs that stood out for us.
