Objectives:
Day 1 of the workshop will focus on establishing a dependable digitization workflow and a managed color system for capturing two and three dimensional material. This will include training staff in digitization methods and color management issues; capturing technical metadata for image preservation; and evaluating various storage & preservation solutions. Instruction will be given in the use of flatbed scanners as well as digital SLR copy-cameras.

Day 2 will focus on strategies for post-processing of material, metadata capture, and image delivery. We will look at various tools to generate OCR, PDF’s, and image derivatives, including Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, and ABBYY Finereader. We will also explore options for capturing administrative and descriptive metadata.
