KenAllenStudios is pleased to announce the first in a series of free seminars in their new studios:


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.

The solutions demonstrated in this seminar are NOT ideal for objects larger than 8×10 inches or for preservation quality scans of modern film or large prints, this last will be covered in a future seminar.
