I'm scanning several volumes of music theory books. Apart from creating one pdf/djvu for each book, I want to logically organize the contents, across volumes, in a searchable, collectable way. (No OCR)
Example: Let's say "Big Music Theory Book" is a series with 6 Volumes. Each volume has about a dozen chapters. A certain topic discussed in Vol 1 (say, on Meter), is elaborated in Vol 2. So I'd want to be able to combine these two chapters together and view.
I'd want to go through pages and add tags/keywords/text-descriptions, manually, to whole page or regions, and retrieve the pages by searching. I'd love to be able to create topic wise views, that retrieve pages across views. (In our example, the Meter)
Searching, collecting and presenting content in different views are not new to us. But,
- is there a (collection of) software, preferably open source, for doing the same on scanned pages.
- If not and if I have to hack around, what is the best way to start (keep scanned pages loose; djvu with outline, hidden text; epub ...)
