"Text Digitization: Project Management, Quality and Costs"
Digitization provides many choices: there are no one-size-fits-all
solutions to digitizing historic materials. This session presents the key
variables associated with digitizing text, and reviews major decisions a
project manager must make to control product quality, costs, or
both. Particular attention will be given to the topics of preparation,
handling and disposition requirements for source materials; and
development of the appropriate specification for the digital reproductions--page
images, searchable text, or both.
