Digitization Basics: Providing Access and Measuring Success (Session 3)

Description:

Previous sessions in this series got you started on your digitization project: from selecting materials to choosing the right tools. But now that you’ve scanned it, will they come? Help ensure that the huge investment of time and resources involved with any digitization project brings the reward you hoped for and more. This final session in our three-part series will provide tips on making your materials accessible and on measuring your project’s outcomes.

Attendees to this session will have the opportunity to

  • Discuss storage and organization options
  • Talk about the importance of metadata (and talk about it some more!)
  • Learn how clear planning enables easy assessment
  • Examine best practices for planning for the future of your collections
