Digitization Basics 2: Tools and Techniques

Description:

Digitization is a process that relies heavily on technology and there are plenty of options, depending on scope and desired outcomes of your project.  In the second session of our Digitization Basics series, we’ll be discussing various tools (from scanners to digital camera and more) and the basic steps for completing quality scans (from selecting and preparing materials to resolution and file type options). Special attention will be given to newspaper digitization projects, due their fragile nature and the complexity of the copyright issues involved. 

 

Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to…

  • Learn about the variety of scanners available and which types of projects work best with each
  • Discuss options based on cost and project scope, including outsourcing
  • Explore what to consider as you prepare for digitization
  • Delve into the details of creating an archival-quality scan including resolution, bit depth, and file types
