    Click Upload at the top right corner The flash upload standard Share button won t function with Firefox use Opera or Internet Explorer instead 2 or Linux You can use the standard JavaScript non flash method although there s a file size limit of 2 GB with Firefox but not with Chromium FTP upload is deprecated because it s slower and crashy but is the only easy to learn possibility if you have to upload many files which shouldn t be the case here OCR tricks edit When the upload has been completed the Internet Archive will start the derive work OCR to create an XML document of detected text based on the uploaded PDF file then conversion of that to a DjVu file with embedded text creation of plain text only dump file among others 3 Don t forget to set the correct language in the metadata before starting the derive which is run automatically after upload if there s something to derive otherwise the OCR language will be set to English and results will be poor for works based in any other language It s not possible to set multiple OCR languages but you re invited to upload the same book twice with the two languages to have two OCRs 4 The length of processing time depends on the size and complexity of your file as well as the current Internet Archive backlog of conversion tests 5 You can check your progress in the queue here and more detailed information about jobs you submitted here must be logged in The Internet Archive uses a professional proprietary commercial ABBYY software 6 with a quite good images and OCR output in many languages and fonts and an aggressive compression 7 which mantains an high quality of the final DjVu file 8 However the Internet Archive sometimes produces over compressed DjVu files with poor quality If this happens you can often download a PDF document and convert manually You can reduce the resolution the derivation aims at which is normally set automatically by some guessing via the fixed ppi field setting it to 300 dpi or lower to reduce sizes processing time and sometimes errors Images formats edit Book scans split into several tiff jpg jp2 format images other formats are not accepted are converted derived as well if you put them in a properly created tar or zip archive 9 It s usually better to upload uncompressed scans or JPEGs the jp2 files produced in the derivation process are compressed in a way you won t be able to emulate without a lot of effort Troubleshooting edit If you have severe problems with your deriving process and you need admin intervention tasks shown in red in your tasks list ask help at info archive org they re usually amazingly helpful General requests for help should be placed in the forums though don t bother them for nothing Step by step edit Preparing the file edit If uploading a collection of page scans The page scans should each be in an image format For example JPEG format The page scans should be named in the correct alphabetical order It may be a good idea to use a naming format such as MyScan001 jpg MyScan002 jpg etc If so remember to use leading zeroes otherwise page 10 will come after page 1 but before page 2 Make sure that the page scans are the only file in the folder you are using Create a zip file of the folder containing your page scans The file name should be in the format Myscan images zip where Myscan is whatever you want to call the file The images suffix is important your scan may not derive properly later if this is omitted Files such as PDFs can just be uploaded as they are Uploading edit Note the following instructions are for the classic uploader superseded by the 2013 upload and create item wizard Most of the instructions below should be unnecessary and ignorable if you use the new simpler uploader A blog post How to upload a scanned book to the Internet Archive is available with many screenshots ignore all the advice on identifiers and metadata it s just the author s personal opinion Log in to the Internet Archive Click the Upload button at the top right of the screen Select the file to upload Fill in the information requested and choose an appropriate licence this will be similar to the licences on Wikisource Title required Description required Keywords required Author Creative Commons Licence or Public Domain Mark Wait for the upload to complete Click the Share my File s button You will see the message Please wait while your page is created then Your Page is Ready followed by link to page Clicking the link will result in a Your item is not yet public message Pick a collection for your file The options will include movie audio text etree and community video community audio community text You will probably be using text and community text Select the appropriate collection and click the Submit to the right At this stage you might be told to wait and come back later This text is Your item is in the process of being derived and you may not replace the metadata until the derive has finished because any changes queued now would roll back those being made by the derive Please try this page again after your item has finished deriving Item History In this case simply follow those instructions try again later In the Metadata Editor complete more information including the information from earlier stages Click the Submit button This will enter the file into log This will take some time to complete Deriving edit Derivation can take up to a few days This can be monitored either through the filename or the Contributions page The various formats of the work should automatically be derived from the files that were uploaded If this

  • Wikisource:Periodical guidelines - Wikisource, the free online library
    free encyclopedia In this guideline article refers to any contributions to periodicals this includes articles essays fiction and poetry Contents 1 Page structure 1 1 Redirects 2 Copyright 2 1 Further reading 3 See also Page structure edit The title of the periodical should be the first page in the main namespace All volumes issues and articles should then be subpages of this page Each possible subdivision should be new level of subpage with the articles themselves ultimately existing as subpages of the issue volume or other instance of the periodical depending on how the periodical was published and released For example the magazine Popular Science Monthly appears as such in the mainspace The magazine is organised into volumes and these volumes are organised by the date of each issue So an article would be a subpage of an issue which would be subpage of a volume which would be a subpage of the periodical itself For instance Popular Science Monthly Popular Science Monthly Volume 1 Popular Science Monthly Volume 1 May 1872 Popular Science Monthly Volume 1 May 1872 The Recent Eclipse of the Sun This structure will depend on the publication of the original periodical and need not be so complicated An example of a simpler page structure would be as follows Avon Fantasy Reader Avon Fantasy Reader Issue 10 Avon Fantasy Reader Issue 10 The Statement of Randolph Carter Redirects edit The complete chain of subpages can be unwieldy when viewed in the Category namespace unhelpful for search purposes and can break incoming links from sister projects To overcome this a redirect can be made To do so a new page is started with the name of the article and the text REDIRECT Full pagename of the periodical and article For example The Recent Eclipse of the Sun redirects with REDIRECT Popular Science Monthly Volume 1 May 1872 The Recent Eclipse of the Sun and The Statement of Randolph Carter redirects with REDIRECT Avon Fantasy Reader Issue 10 The Statement of Randolph Carter Further categories can be added to the redirect page instead of the article itself When viewed in the Category namespace these pages will be seen in italics This helps to keep the category pages easy to read and uncluttered by long series of full pagenames Copyright edit There are two copyrights to consider with periodicals The issue of the periodical itself Each article published in the periodical If the issue of the periodical is still under copyright for instance if it was published between 1923 and 1963 and the copyright was renewed then it is probable that all of the articles within the issue are also still under copyright This may not be the case if the periodical was only sold first printing rights but this requires proof and cannot be assumed This only applies if the renewal was made during the lifetime of the author If an author died before the copyright renewal date then all rights reverted to the author s estate
