Wanted: rough and ready text conversion methodologies

I’m seeking information on rough and ready / just good enough approaches for paper to electronic text conversion – either finding aids and metadata, or other texts. I’m interested in…

  • Finding out what conversion services people are using (and what costs are)
  • Finding out if people are doing scanning and OCR in house (and if so what software and workflows you are using)
  • If you are participating in a multi-institution project to convert text, I’m very interested in hearing about tools and workflows that make things go smoothly in terms of keeping files straight and minimizing overhead for contributing institutions.
  • You can leave information in the comments section or send me an email. I will summarize responses in a future blog posting.
