Collections Care Training: Introduction to Digitization

  • June 27, 2018

Digitization can be the final step in processing collections, facilitating access, and even aiding in collections’ long-term preservation.  Like other collections care endeavors, digitization should not be undertaken without an understanding of best practices, safe techniques, and the knowledge to make appropriate decisions.  This workshop will provide a basic overview of establishing policies, prioritization and selection criteria, equipment options, handling practices for scanning or photographing, storage concerns, and other considerations in digital preservation.  This primer on establishing a digitization program is intended for collections staff and volunteers with very little or no experience digitizing materials.

Speaker: Dyani Feige, Director of Preservation Services, CCAHA

Location: Bryn Mawr College Special Collections 

Fee: $60
