Learning Session Scheduled for January 30th at 1PM - Lessons of a first time digitizer

Session Description: Lessons of a first time digitizer

Most presentations provide "best practices" in undertaking digitization projects. In this case study, disclosures of two incorrect approaches will be discussed leading to a final correct outcome. This program is specifically geared toward solo librarians who have little or no experience in undertaking a digitization project. Please note that this presentation will not cover digital preservation.
