How ResCartaWeb Works
Each page was scanned as a bi-tone TIFF at 600dpi and the image files were processed with an OCR program. This generated the search text that was placed into the individual tiff files according to the ResCarta standards defining monograph and serial objects. The ResCarta Collection Manager was used to create the collection metadata and an Apache Lucene index was created using the ResCarta Indexer Tool. The data files and the index were then placed on the Apache Tomcat web server and the ResCartaWeb software was copied to the WEBAPPS directory. We have used JSP pages running on an Apache Tomcat server that allows us to serve ResCarta formatted data to the web quickly and easily.
You may browse the list or perform a keyword search. Look for "shoemaker" or "gunsmith" to see how many hits are generated. Or try "Clemens", a favorite son in Missouri. To start the demo, please click here.
