Workshop Description:

















Computers have been around for a generation, now, and a lot of matierial is available through digital media. However, there is still a lot of valuable information left to be digitized. This tutorial covers the basics of scanning and will improve your understanding of the issues involved with digitization projects, including copyright issues, equipment, terms, funding.

So, before breaking out the scanners, spend a couple of hours reviewing what you need to know in order to make your digitization project a success.


After completing this course, you will understand the following objectives:

  • The importance of scanning resolution, including the terms pixels, dots per inch (DPI), pixels per inch (PPI), and bit depth
  • The aspects of digital project management including selection criteria, legal restrictions, intellectual property rights, outsourcing, and planning projects
  • The different parts of metadata and their role in digitization
  • How to explain the building blocks of a digital library system, including infrastructure, presentation/digital asset management systems, workflow, and documentation
  • Some ideas related to preservation issues
  • Important ways to approach funding issues
  • How all of these elements work together in a digitization project


The course addresses these issues and more in a web-based course designed to take about 1 1/2 hours to complete. It contains multimedia elements, external links, pre- and post-tests, and course evaluation modules.
