Texas Digital Newspaper Program
http://tdnp.unt.edu/

The University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries was selected as the lead institution in Texas for the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers. The National Digital Newspaper Program is a joint project by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LOC) to develop an Internet-based, searchable database of U.S. newspapers from 1690 to the present. During the next 20 years, NDNP will create a digital resource of historically significant newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 in all 50 states and U.S. territories. For each two-year phase of the grant, UNT delivers 100,000 pages of digitized newspapers to LOC, and UNT also hosts these images on the Portal to Texas History, for free and open access. Beyond Chronicling America, the Texas Digital Newspaper Program seeks to form partnerships with a wide array of groups to digitize as many Texas newspaper titles as possible, through private foundation funding, friends of the library projects, and individual partner self-funding. Our goal is to create a digital newspaper repository that represents all Texas counties, and this is only achievable through statewide collaboration. Our newest initiative is to preserve and host digital newspaper PDFs. Digital newspaper PDFs, which are the PDF print masters sent to a newspaper printing office, are a significant next frontier for newspaper access and preservation. For all newspapers included in the repository, whether they are scanned from microfilm or acquired through PDF print master, the Texas Digital Newspaper Program draws upon best practice standards established by the Library of Congress and the NEH for the National Digital Newspaper Program. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

ProcessOnTime™ – TransCertain’s™ Patent Pending Enhanced Recurring Process Scheduling Mechanism

ProcessOnTime™ – TransCertain’s™ Patent Pending Enhanced Recurring Process Scheduling Mechanism
http://transcertain.com/Services.html#Beyond

ProcessOnTime™ is TransCertain’s™ Patent Pending enhanced recurring process scheduling mechanism. It allows an organization to manage business rules which determine when, how often, and what kind of processing to schedule and generate. ProcessOnTime™ uses (i) the CertainStore™ system to securely manage sensitive information from the business rules and (ii) the TransAct™ system to manage the payments with a wide variety of payment processors. Sensitive information, such as an account number, image file or other document, is tokenized, encrypted and stored in CertainStore™‘s Vault. The end user interacts with ProcessOnTime™ through straight-forward web calls and XML payloads. A token is used to identify and verify that the customer organization is registered and approved to conduct business. The interaction between elements of the TransCertain™ system (i.e., ProcessOnTime™, CertainStore™, and TransAct™) occurs transparently to the customer. CollectOnTime™ is an implementation of ProcessOnTime™ that allows merchants to create and maintain rules that generate recurring payments on a regular schedule. This system uses CertainStore™ to manage the cardholder data, so its exposure to sensitive information is all contained in that system. Future Event Data Manager™ is a system which permits advanced analytics and manipulates and analyzes data based on client generated rules and processes. When combined with TransCertain’s™ Rapid-Adapter™ technology, clients can receive real-time information and data presented in readily consumable formats defined by rules determined by the client. This will be added to Privacy Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Internet Privacy and Security Resources Digital Linkseries Publications.
