About This Web Site

This web site was created as an independent class project for Development of Cultural Information Resources Using Digital Multimedia (LIS208) at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at the University of California at Los Angeles. All works displayed are owned by the Honma Collection which resides at the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

The materials were scanned in the Spring of 1997 as part the LIS208 course taught by Anne J. Gilliland-Swetland . All documents were scanned at 150 dots per inch and 24 bit depth on a Hewlett-Packard HP ScanJet IIc and saved as TIFF files. The TIFF files were converted in into JPEG's and saved at high resolution. Details of the actual images are exported GIF's using an adaptive palette. The original JPEG's were reduced in size to descries the file sizes and display dimensions. All image processing was accomplished using Adobe Photoshop 4.0, using a Power Macintosh 8500/120.

All text was written specifically for this web site using publications and primary source material in the collection of the Japanese American Museum. The pages were coded by hand in HTML 2.0. Then recoded for continuity.
