School for Scanning: Creating, Managing, and Preserving Digital Assets
Delray Beach, Florida
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center
December 3-5, 2001
Delray Beach, Florida
The conference is funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the
National Endowment for the Humanities. It is cosponsored by SEFLIN
(Southeast Florida Library Information Network, Inc.) and SOLINET
(Southeastern Library Network).
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:
Copyright and Other Legal Issues
Content Selection for Digitization
Quality Control and Costs
Collaborative Project Models
Text and Image Digitization
Descriptive, Structural, and Administrative Metadata
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.
What does the Conference Cost? The cost of the conference is $325 for early
bird registration postmarked on or before October 19, 2001, and $400 for
late registration, deadline November 9, 2001. Participants will be
responsible for their travel, meals, and lodging costs. A complimentary
continental breakfast will be provided each morning at the conference site.
