This is a reminder that on Monday October 31st, I am presenting a ½-day seminar, Introduction to Basic Imaging, in Princeton, NJ. It will be hosted by Princeton University and the Society of American Archivists in the Computer Sciences Building.
Following the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative (FADGI), this workshop will give you an overview of the main concepts of digital preservation, as well as a methodology for digital imaging. The focus will be on helping small institutions identify and implement inexpensive digital projects.
Upon completing this half-day workshop, you’ll be able to:
- Understand the basics of emerging practices in digitization projects;
- Define a low-cost digitization project;
- Identify objects that are appropriate for a low-cost system;
- Understand the basics of color management, including the creation of profiles;
- Convey basic information on implementing and operating the system to create archival digital scans.
You can see a full course listing and sign up at the SAA website.
Please feel free to forward this anyone whom you think might benefit from this seminar. I hope to see you there!
