Digitizing 13.000 pages of musical scores for the Dublin Contemporary Music Centre


@mkrzmr Very cool. What format do the compositions end up in? Is it PDF, or some sort of digital tabular format? Sorry if my terminology is inaccurate, I'm not musically inclined.


@jmwright Same here, I was very happy we had a musicologist on board. The scores were saved as uncompressed images and PDF/A files.
