This course comprises two parts: a prerequisite 90-minute webcast and this one-day course.
This course builds upon the principles and examples presented in the webcast. You’ll experience working “hands-on” with digital photographs and some suggested shareware programs. The instructors will walk you through the steps of acquisition to processing, interview a photographer and a family collection assembler (the instructors), and use various shareware programs to perform basic capture, analysis, arrangement, and description. Attendees will benefit from this gathering whether they work in smaller shops without technical support or within an environment that includes an information technology department. The knowledge gained in this course will also help archivists work proactively with their donors, and be effective in creating best practices and policies for managing born-digital visual collections.
Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to:
