Digitization Workshop [clear filter]
Wednesday, July 22

1:30pm CDT

Digitization Basics for Archives and Special Collections - Part 2: Store and Share
This is the second part of a two-part, full-day workshop introducing the core elements of creating digital collections of historic photographs, documents and other archival materials. Part 2 focuses on sharing your digitized materials with the world and steps you can take to ensure that they'll remain usable and accessible into the future. We'll define metadata and why it's important, and consider approaches to creating descriptive metadata for discovery of historical resources. We'll examine the issue of digital preservation, including practical steps you can take to preserve your digital content with limited resources. And we'll think about digitization as a path to community engagement, including reaching out to your community for content and promoting your digital collections to your users.
