So You Want to Digitize?: Creating a Digitization Workflow and Maximizing Limited Resources

So You Want to Digitize?: Creating a Digitization Workflow and Maximizing Limited Resources

Presentation by:

Whitney Alexander, Director of Technical Services
David Brian Holt, Electronic Services Librarian

This session will cover how to make the best use of a digitization project in your library. Discussion topics will include whether to outsource to a third-party vendor or select your own digitization equipment. At Santa Clara Law, we purchased two book scanners (one Zeutschel Zeta and one Zeutschel 12000 BC) and two films scanners (U-Scan Patron Scanner) that are used to digitize materials for our institutional repository. During the beginning stages of this project, we learned what mistakes libraries frequently make when embarking on a digitization project and what pitfalls to avoid. Additionally, we will discuss how to create a digitization workflow including staff training and collaboration with library interns and other libraries.
