KenAllenStudios is pleased to announce the first in a series of free seminars in their new studios:
THE $5,000 Do It Yourself DIGITIZATION PROJECT
Digitizing a museum’s collection is usually presented as a large and expensive project, entailing the purchasing of expensive equipment and the hiring of appropriate technically-oriented staff. However, much can be accomplished on a smaller scale with a limited budget.
Small digitization projects develop institutional knowledge and provide use cases to promote as well as procure funding for additional projects or expansion of a digital library.
This workshop will demonstrate the capabilities and benefits of the small, low-impact digitization project. Learn about the advantages, limitations, ideal applications, and benefits of the $5,000 digitization project; understand the process of digitization and how to manage your project.
For: Curators, Collections Managers, Rights and Reproduction Staff
What: Photographic collections that contain:
• Daguerreotypes • Collodion Images (e.g., tintypes, ambrotypes) •
• Cartes de Visite • Cabinet Cards • Lantern Slides • Glass Negatives •
• Stereographs • Postcards • Small Prints (8×10 or smaller) •
The seminar will include demonstrations on typical equipment and information on do-it-yourself projects.
