Using a scanner or a digital camera, high-resolution 300 dpi digital image files are created for each SA Memory object. These preservation quality digital images record the appearance and condition of the original item; the scans or photographs are not enhanced or manipulated.
For presentation on the website, low-resolution files at 72 dpi are created for 'thumbnail', 'detail' and 'enlarge' views. These low-resolution images available on SA Memory are suitable for immediate printing or downloading to provide good quality copies for study, research and creative activities.
Any PC or Macintosh hardware should support this website, although it will run better with a faster computer.
Similarly, this website will load more quickly with a fast modem or other internet connection. However, it is designed so that nearly all pages will load within 20 seconds over a 56k connection.
SA Memory is designed to work with a wide range of current browsers and will work best with Internet Explorer version 5.0 or above.

Some SA Music objects have digital scores available.
If you cannot view/listen to these scores go to the Sibelius website (http://www.sibelius.com/products/scorch/index.html) to download the Scorch plug in.
The Quicktime plug-in is required to play sound or video clips. The quality will vary depending on the connection speed to the internet, and does not necessarily reflect the quality of the original recordings. Although a 28k modem will play, a 56k modem or faster connection is recommended.
SA Memory uses the Macromedia Flash Plugin to provide interactivity.
