Creating, Managing, and
Preserving Digital Assets

Presented by the
Northeast Document Conservation Center


What is the School for Scanning? This conference provides current, essential information for managers of paper-based collections (including photographs) who are seeking to create, manage, and preserve digital assets. Participants will leave the conference better equipped to make informed choices regarding management of their digital projects. Although significant technical content will be presented, this is not a technician-training program. Conference content will include:

Project Management Collaborative Project Models
Copyright and Other Legal Issues Text and Image Digitization
Content Selection for Digitization Descriptive, Structural, and
Standards     Administrative Metadata
Quality Control and Costs Digital Longevity and Preservation

Who Should Attend? Administrators within cultural institutions, as well as librarians, archivists, curators, and other cultural or natural resource managers dealing with paper-based collections, including photographs, will find the School for Scanning conference highly relevant and worthwhile. Since the complexion of this conference evolves with the technology, it would be beneficial to attend even if you have participated in a previous School for Scanning. An audience of 200 or more attendees is expected.
