Getting Started with Digitization
Apr 24, 2017, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Online via GoToWebinar
Audience: Librarians and staff at smaller libraries and historical organizations
Description: Digitizing historical and cultural heritage collections is very important to create an online presence for smaller libraries and historical organizations, but often seems impossible with tiny staffs and minimal funding. However, that digitization project you've been dreaming about may not be so far out of reach! SCRLC has many resources to help smaller organizations get their digitization projects off the ground, and no organization is too small to start digitizing!
Topics will include:
*Why starting a digitization program is important for small organizations.
*What steps are involved in starting a digitization project, including project planning, equipment, and metadata description.
*How you can host your digitized content in New York Heritage Digital Collections, the Digital Public Library of America, and New York State Historic Newspapers.
*What services are available through SCRLC to get you started digitizing your collections for little or no cost.
