[MCN-L] Collection sharing software

2016-04-25 Thread Suzanne Quigley
I have a client who wants to share collection items with interested parties. 
Rich data and hi resolution images are managed by a database. The client wishes 
to share only selected works and selected data  with selected curators and 
scholars.
Can anyone recommend a vehicle for doing this without spending thousands? 
Perhaps with a password that can be divulged for access?  Important that Google 
or other search engines can't access the data. 

I look forward to your thoughts, with thanks,
Suzanne

Perhaps the Kentucky Derby Museum still has its 360 circular moving projection

blazing around them.

Re: [MCN-L] digital signatures on loan agreements

2015-08-20 Thread Suzanne Quigley
I just signed one yesterday with a digital signature. It never occurred to me 
that it might not be accepted. I saved the doc as a pdf before i emailed it. I 
don't see much difference between printing out the form, signing it, scanning 
it, saving it as a pdf and then emailing it- other than all the steps involved!
I'll be interested to hear what others say.

[MCN-L] 16mm transfer

2007-03-22 Thread Suzanne Quigley
Please reply to the list - if they can do 16mm, surely they can do  
8mm?  I need 100 ft of 8 mm transfered.

Thanks,

Suzanne Quigley

 Has anyone used a service to transfer 16mm to digital format? I was  
 thinking
 of looking into getting a Telecline projector, and doing it in- 
 house, but it
 may be cheaper to have it done elsewhere. The only benefit with  
 getting some
 kind of in-house system, is that we have a lot of newsreel footage  
 that we
 could transfer also.

 Can anyone recommend a company they have used already, or can you  
 recommend
 a set up for us to be able to do this in-house?
 Thanks

[MCN-L] IP SIG: Editing out offensive language from movies violates copyright

 Editing Movies Violates Copyright, Judge Rules
 After a bitter three-year legal battle involving Utah companies  
 that sanitize movies on DVD and VHS tape, a federal judge in Denver  
 ruled that such editing violates U.S. copyright laws and must be  
 stopped. In a ruling in the case involving CleanFlicks vs. 16 of  
 Hollywood's hottest directors, U.S. District Judge Richard P.  
 Matsch found that making copies of movies to delete objectionable  
 language, sex and violence hurts studios and directors who own the  
 movie rights.

Re: MCN 2005 and MCN 2006

2005-11-10 Thread Suzanne Quigley
Hi Marla, et al, I was very pleased to hear from several attendees that this year's conference was a great success.  Congratulations to all!  I just returned from a stimulating evening produced by the NY Bar Association.  I am VERY grateful to Diane Zorich for passing on the notice of the event to the listserve.  One of the speakers was Lawrence Lessig - and I have to say, he was great.  Sadly he didn't have much time to expound - but as we can see from his postings on the list (also forwarded by Diane!), he is articulate, passionate, intelligent and easy to understand.  I highly recommend him, and now nominate him, as the keynote speaker.Suzanne QuigleyOn Nov 10, 2005, at 8:41 PM, Misunas, Marla wrote:Hello everyone,Thank you to all who participated in the annual meeting in Boston last week!It was a rousing success by all accounts.  The sessionsI attended were all outstanding, and the networking opportunities werehelpful on so many levels.  It was wonderful to see so many of us in one placeafter a year of being in touch in cyberspace. I?m sure you?re as excited as I am that we will soon have a new MCN website!In the meantime, though, we are hoping to perk up the old one, one last time. Send in your conference photos!I would like to ask a favor of those of you who attended and snapped photos at the meeting.If you are willing to share them on the website, please send them to i...@mcn.edu, or sendan email with the URLs if you have them on your own website.  The photos will bereviewed for part of a conference photo album.  While I can?t guarantee every photo will beused, I welcome any and all submissions of conference activity photos and we will credityou (assuming our pages allow for that sort of thing) on the site. Keynote speaker nominationsWe are looking for keynote speaker nominations for the 2006 conference in Pasadena.If you know of a dynamic, charismatic speaker (especially one whom you?ve seen in the past)who works in or around our areas of interest,please forward any suggestions to me via email.  We offer an honorarium for the speaker,although as you might guess we are not offering a huge sum.  So Bill Gates is probably out.But do send me your thoughts and ideas and help us get going on the process.  ObviouslyI can?t guarantee the person you nominate will be chosen, but the more nominations wehave, the better the process will be. Thanks very much for your time  continued enthusiasm!

[MCN-L] History of Museum Gaming?

1970-01-02 Thread Suzanne Quigley
Hi Richard,

I think I have a fairly complete file of all the Spectra issues in  
paper going back to the beginning.  If you know what issue(s) might  
have your info - let me know, I will scan and send... But I don't  
have the time to dig through them for references until February, I  
believe we had an archivist at one point in time - Does anyone  
remember who?  Someone at the SI?  There should be another complete  
set there.

The first Museum to have a website? Good question.   I remember the  
first collections to have images tied to their databases - back in  
the early 80's - the Eastman House Museum in Rochester New York and  
the Helen Allen Textile Collection at UW-Madison (WI). We were all  
envious at the first public kiosks - National Gallery London and  
Seattle Art Museum spring to mind - although it was a hot time for  
that and there were likely others.

 We've had the conversation about who was the first museum to have  
 a web site.  Here's mine. Do we know who was the first museum to  
 install public computers for the purpose of gaming/ virtual  
 environments (text-based, 2d, 3d, whatever)?

 I would gladly reimurse copying fees for anyone in possesion of  
 pre-1990s Spectra articles on the topic.
