About the Digital Collection

Over 14,000 images from the Burgert Brothers Photographic Collection have been scanned. Scanned images are available for viewing through the library's online catalog.

In 1997 the library was awarded a grant by the Frank E. Duckwall Foundation, a local philanthropic organization in the Tampa Bay area. Grant money has been used to purchase imaging equipment and graphics software.

Technical Details

Using the library's own photographic prints, images are scanned at a resolution of 100 dots-per-inch (DPI). The black & white images have a tonal resolution of 8 bits-per-pixel. All scanned images have been saved in JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) format and are loaded on a library Web server reserved for the scanned photographic images.
