Digitizing your collection

This class builds on "Starting a Digitization Project, pt 1 - Organize and describe your collection" by using the project plan and finding aide to prioritize what parts of the collection to digitize in what order, using the collection samples to determine what digitization method will work best for your collection, practice with digitization equipment, file naming best practices, and using the metadata worksheet to to associate the digital files with the content description.

PLS is limited to one scanner, one camera, and one cassette converter, but every attempt will be made so that participants have some hands on time with equipment. Bring collection samples for practice and YOUR OWN FLASHDRIVE.

Additional, informal practice time with the equipment, help with metadata, or general consultation, can be arranged!
