Anthology Jam

The purpose of this page is to provide step-by-step instructions for acquiring page images and PDFs for the Open Modernisms (OM) repository using the Internet Archive or Modernist Journals Project.

Copyright

OpenModernisms is housed in Canada. That means the copyright term for published material is 50 years after the death of the author.

We ask you to locate the “first publication” of a work for our repository.  For example, T. S. Eliot’s poem, “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” was first published in Poetry Magazine in June 1915. It was then published in book form in 1917 as Prufrock and Other Observations. It has been reproduced countless times in anthologies. For our repository, we will need to you to find the original publications in 1915 or 1917–and it just so happens that the Modernist Journals Project (MJP) has made this issue available at modjourn.org. If that version were not available, we can see that Prufrock and Other Observations is on archive.org.

n.b.: In order to respect copyright, under no circumstances should you copy or photograph a poem from an anthology published after 1950 (unless you have permission from the rights holder).

Workflow When Using Existing Resources

The first step of this workflow is to identify material that needs to be acquired for the repository. Or, if you

Step 1:

Check the OM wishlist

If you would like to contribute something that is not listed in the document, please feel free to add it to the spreadsheet. 

Step 2:

Go to Wikipedia.org and look for publication information

At Wikipedia, you can find out when the author died (important for copyright) and when (sometimes, where) works were first published. You will need to note this information later.

Step 3:

Go to the Modernist Journals Project (modjourn.org) or Internet Archive (https://archive.org/details/texts) and search for work. 

We need to find the first–or early–publications of our works (we cannot simply copy the work from an existing anthology). 

Step 4:

Download PDF version of work (or PDF in which your work appears)

  • MJP: “View PDF” → “save as” or “save”
  • Archive.org: (on right, click on “PDF”)

Step 5:

Download page images 

these will probably be .jpg or .tiff

  • MJP: Open “Page Images,” scroll to appropriate page image, “right click” → “save as”
  • Archive.org: “SINGLE PAGE PROCESSED JPEG ZIP

Step 6:

Extract relevant pages from your PDF

On a Mac:

  • Open PDF in “Preview”
  • Highlight the appropriate pages of the work (hold down the shift key to
  • “Copy” the pages (Command + C)
  • under FILE→ select “New from Clipboard”
  • Save new PDF as authorlastname_titlekeyword_date.pdf

On a PC:

If you have Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can easily extract the pages you need from a PDF.

If you don’t have Acrobat Pro, and you cannot install software on the computer you’re working on, you can do two things:

  1. Using Google Chrome (if installed)
  2. Using CutePDF reader online

Step 7:

Save the relevant image files in a single folder

Step 8:

Upload your PDF and Image files to the “Open Mods Repo” Google Folder

  1. If a folder does not exist for your author, create a new folder with the following structure: Lastname, First Name (ex: Eliot, T. S.)
  2. Create a new subfolder inside your author’s main folder for your work’s title (Eliot, T. S. → The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock 1915)
  3. Create two subfolders within this folder called “PDF” and “Images”

 Thus, your folder structure will look like this:

Eliot, T. S.

→ Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

→ PDF

→ Images

  1. Copy PDF file to the PDF folder
  2. Copy Images to the Images folder

Step 9:

Fill in the appropriate information about your work on the Open Modernisms Spreadsheet

  • Everything in red is required
    • Author Last Name (Eliot)
    • Author First Name (T. S. or Thomas Stearns)
    • Title of Document (The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock)
    • Page Images Acquired by (Matt Huculak)
    • Image Acquired? y/n (Yes)
    • PDF acquired? y/n (Yes)
    • From (Modernist Journals Project)
    • Title of Publication/Publisher (Poetry Magazine)
    • Country of Publication (USA)
    • Date Published (1915)
    • URL (modjourn.org)

Because we love the Internet Archive and the Modernist Journals Project, we want to make sure we give them credit in our final repository. Please note WHERE the material came from.

Step 10:

Rejoice! You’ve just contributed to a free, open anthology of modernism!

 


 

Example Workflow for “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”

Step 1: We assume that “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” has not been digitized yet.

Step 2: Check Wikipedia.org for information pertaining to poem.

    1. This is what Wikipedia says about Prufrock:

“Eliot began writing “Prufrock” in February 1910, and it was first published in the June 1915 issue of Poetry: A Magazine of Verse[2] at the instigation of Ezra Pound (1885–1972). It was later printed as part of a twelve-poem pamphlet (or chapbook) titled Prufrock and Other Observations in 1917.[1]

We know that the Modernist Journals Project has a run of Poetry Magazine up to 1922.

Step 3: Navigate to the June 1915 issue of Poetry Magazine at modjourn.org

Step 4: Download the PDF of this issue by clicking on “View PDF”

Depending on your settings, your browser will either load the PDF or “Save” the PDF. Make sure you save the PDF to your hard drive.

Step 5: Download Page scans/images

For the MJP:

  • Click on “Page Images”
  • Scroll to appropriate page image in the list
  • Click on the appropriate Image to enlarge it
  • “Right Click” the image and  “save image as” a sequential number

Step 6: Extract relevant pages from your PDF

On a Mac:

  • Open PDF in “Preview”
  • Highlight the pages containing the poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” (pgs 130-135); you can hold down the “Shift” key to select multiple pages.
  • “Copy” the pages (Command + C)
  • under FILE→ select “New from Clipboard”
  • A new PDF from the selected pages should have been created.
  • Save new PDF as eliot_prufrock_1915.pdf 

On a PC:

If you have Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can easily extract the pages you need from a PDF.

If you don’t have Acrobat Pro, and you cannot install software on the computer you’re working on, you can do two things:

  1. Using Google Chrome (if installed)
  2. Using CutePDF reader online

Step 7: Save relevant images

Make sure you have downloaded the page images from the and organize them in a folder.

Step 8: Go to the “Open Mods Repo” Google Drive Folder

  • If a folder does not exist for your author, create a new folder with the following structure: Lastname, First Name (Eliot, T. S.)
  • Create a new subfolder inside your author’s main folder for your work’s title:

Eliot, T. S. →

The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock 1915

  • Create two subfolders within this folder called “PDF” and “Images”

Thus, your folder structure will look like this:

Eliot, T. S.

→ Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock

→ PDF

→ Images

  • Copy PDF file to the PDF folder 
  • Copy page scan images to Images folder

Step 9: Fill in the appropriate information in the OpenModernism spreadsheet
