Our new archival image server (which will actually archive a variety of media ranging from digitized photographs to sound files) is now online, thanks to our great IT folks. Dubbed Demeter, the server will store a lot of images — over 7 TB. I expect to begin transferring files from discs by August 1st.  I have more detective work on file name and photo accession number correspondences before I start the transfer, but once the files are on Demeter, I can begin bringing them into CONTENTdm.
