n.a process that creates alternative copies of recordsWhatley 2001, 66Due to the size of the digital images being created, one of the most demanding aspects of the project is image management. The images are saved in TIFF format on the capture station hard drive and on the server.Robertson 2013, 146Somewhat refreshingly, this key section of the work gives a light touch to image capture technologies themselves, relying instead on the body of expert knowledge already imparted in the preceding chapters and focusing on the more stimulating history of digitization practice and the reasons for its use within memory institutions today.Miller 2013, 524In a blend of large-scale and selective approaches, about sixteen thousand pages of various formats were scanned, including microfilm copies of handwritten letters. Existing descriptions were used, though full-text transcriptions were created for the letters. Speed of capture was less of a focal point than the effectiveness of the metadata, though the project made clear that capture at lower bit depth and resolution can speed production without inhibiting use.a process that acquires a target set of digital recordsHedstrom 1991, 341To learn much about the impact of information technology on capture, creation, and use of information, research must reach beyond the technology and examine its application and the context in which it is applied.Walters 1995, 480Experimentation in the digital capture of information may one day provide another archival quality preservation option for the archivist’s tool box.Prom and Swain 2007, 346Would the capture of a student organization’s website sufficiently document the organization’s activities? Nash and Sosnowsky 2010, 156Once events that create archival records are defined, the focus shifts to record capture and recordkeeping systems.the second dimension of the electronic records continuum model; the point at which records exist in context with other records, have metadata associated with them, and can serve as evidence of business functionsUpward 1997, 11Its axes deal with an archivist’s concerns with evidence, transactions, identity, and recordkeeping ‘containers’. Four dimensions of the continuum are identified: document creation; records capture; the organisation of corporate and personal memory; and the pluralisation of collective memory.McKemmish 19972D Capture ¶ The second dimension encompasses the personal and corporate recordkeeping systems which capture documents in context in ways which support their capacity to act as evidence of the social and business activities of the units responsible for the activities.Flynn 2001, 83The second dimension, capture, involves the ‘work unit with which the actor is associated’ (my italic); the activity in the context of which transactions take place; the created document together with information about its context (eg its provenance, or its relationships to other documents) as a record; and the evidence which results.Reed 2005, 20The beginnings of that journey to robustness occur with transition into the second ‘capture’ dimension when the document is communicated or connected through relationships with other documents, with sequences of action. With characteristics from the second dimension, records, now attest to evidence of action and are able to be distributed, accessed and understood by others involved in undertaking business activities. The transition to the second dimension may be formal or informal, may involve a deliberate act of registration in organizational systems, or may be an intention represented by placement or grouping. Here metadata elements needed to make the context of the document known are added and the record is able to be referenced or drawn upon by others.v.to execute such a processPeterson 1984, 387Once that decision is made, it then becomes a technical problem to determine how to capture the information, and the problem will have to be solved in concert with computer specialists.Bantin 1999, 159The IUArchives team has defined its mission and its contribution to the analysis as the identification and appraisal of records generated in the context of business processes, and the creation of systems that capture, manage, and preserve these records.Daines 2013, 102Web harvesting tools or database backup utilities can be used to capture materials from servers.
Capture most commonly refers to the digitizing of analog records (paper files, movie film, audiotape, etc.) or the accumulation and transfer of records to a storage location, but the term can also encompass the microfilming of records. The use of the term capture within the electronic records continuum model is essentially unrelated to the first sense of the term.
