Digitization Basics 103: Advanced Scanning and Metadata

  • Digitization
  • Webinar
  • 1 CE Hour


This series focuses on the nuts and bolts of digitizing: scanning and metadata. It is designed so those with no digitization experience can start with Digitization Basics 101 and follow along through the entire series, while more experienced users can jump in with Digitization Basics 102 or 103. Each session will feature a different style of scanner and ways to apply metadata to make the most of your digital collections.

Digitization Basics 103 builds on the previous session and gets into the nitty-gritty of scanning and getting the most out of your metadata. This session is also a great jumping-on point for experienced digitizers looking to build their skills.

We will review:

  • Scanning standards and best practices
  • Choosing the right type of scanner for your project
  • Dublin Core metadata

Attendees will learn about:

  • Image editing
  • Special format scanners
  • Object photography
  • Using large-format scanners
  • Advanced file and folder naming conventions
  • Digital file storage
  • Enhanced metadata (improved descriptions, controlled vocabularies, standardized rights statements)
