With each new issue of the Sacred Harp Publishing Company Newsletter we are digitizing three back issues of the National Sacred Harp Newsletter, which was published from 1985–1993, and presenting them here as the first online exhibit of the Sacred Harp Museum. Each issue has been digitized in archival quality and is made available as a free download.
Vol. 1, No. 1: June, 1985
Vol. 1, No. 2: July, 1985
Vol. 1, No. 3: August, 1985
The Newsletter issues were digitized using a flatbed scanner in color at a bit depth of 16 and at 600 dpi resolution. The resulting files are made available here in two forms:
- As a searchable (with text recognition applied through Adobe Acrobat) small PDF file optimized for screen and print and
- By request over e-mail as ZIP files containing uncompressed, full color, high-resolution, archival quality TIFF images for each page.
In addition to the Sacred Harp Publishing Company, this project is made possible by B. M. Smith, who donated his collection of National Newsletters to be unstapled and digitized for this project, and the Pitts Theology Library at Emory University, who have provided copies backup copies of Newsletter issues from their collection of the papers of Raymond C. Hamrick, and who have provided the equipment used to digitize the Newsletter issues.
