Planning and Managing Digitization Projects
Monday, October 28, 2019
10 am – 3 pm
with John Diefenderfer
Ticonderoga Historical Society
6 Moses Circle in Ticonderoga, New York 12883

Successfully digitizing archival collections requires more than knowing how to operate a scanner. This workshop provides a basic overview of some of the issues institutions should consider when digitizing materials, including prioritization and selection criteria, handling practices while scanning or photographing, and storage concerns for digital media. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions and “real life” digital challenges or successes to discuss as part of the workshop.

About John Diefenderfer: John works at the New York State Archives in the Archival Advisory Services Unit coordinating DHP advisory and grant services.
