Is your institution modest and lacking the budget for a digitization project? Knowing how to do a low-impact digitization project and seeing its impact can lead to additional projects and more funding. In this introductory workshop, you’ll learn about the advantages, limitations, ideal applications, and benefits of a small digital imaging project and about the process of digitization. (The instructor will demonstrate a project on one type of scanner, and then discuss other scanning options for the same project.) You’ll also become familiar with the guidelines emerging from the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative: Still Image Working Group.
Upon completing this half-day workshop, you’ll be able to:
- Understand the basics of emerging practices in digitization projects;
- Define a low-cost digitization project;
- Identify objects that are appropriate for a low-cost system;
- Understand the basics of color management, including the creation of profiles; and
- Convey basic information on implementing and operating the system to create archival digital scans.
Who should attend? Archivists, curators, collections managers, rights and reproduction staff who require digital images from archival collections, and digitization proposal reviewers.
Attendance is limited to 35.
