Camilla Urso Collection

Camilla Urso was one of the leading violinists of the 19th century. She accomplished this at a time when the violin was not considered to be a suitable instrument for a woman to play. Furthermore, she made the difficult transition from child prodigy to mature artist with a career that spanned more than fifty years and that took place on several continents.


Kindra Becker Redd (MLIS 2011) completed the digitization of the Urso collection and uploaded it into the content management system. Redd scanned the items on the Avision bookedge scanner and created metadata using Dublin Core best practices. Katharine Thompson Allen completed the metadata. This project could not have been completed without the help of Tony Branch, systems administrator for the CONTENTdm database.
