Managing Digitization Projects


Has your library been interested in beginning or continuing a digitization project? Have you come up against barriers to such an undertaking, be they large or small? At this workshop you will hear stories of digitization from the field, covering aspects from initial planning to ongoing maintenance, and the all things that come in-between. Our presenters will share with you what they have learned in carrying out their digitization projects, and provide you with tips and tools to apply to your own digitization needs. An afternoon question & answer panel will address your burning questions – if you have an in-depth or detailed question, please e-mail it to so it may be shared with the panelists in advance.
