To Scan or Not to Scan: What are the Questions?

This full-day preconference will take place in Atlanta, Georgia on
Wednesday, May 1st, as part of the SOLINET 1996 Annual Membership
Meeting. The preconference will cover issues related to digitizing
library and archival materials.  It is designed to give participants
the tools needed to make informed decisions about undertaking
scanning projects.  Deanna Marcum, President of the Commission on
Preservation and Access and the Council on Library Resources will be
the keynote speaker.

Morning events include two presentations:  Anne Kenney, Associate
Director for Preservation at Cornell, will discuss "Digital Imaging:
A Theoretical and Technical Overview"; and Tom Hickerson, Director
of the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections and Co-Director
of the Cornell Digital Access Coalition, will present "Exploring
Models for Collaborative Development and Management of Digital
Collections."

The afternoon will begin with a panel discussion--representatives
from Emory University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,
and University of Tennessee will present case studies on their
institutions' scanning projects.  Following the panel will be five
facilitated break-out sessions:  1) Indexing, searching and
retrieval; 2) Copyright and intellectual control; 3) Funding; 4)
Implications for resource sharing--SOLINET's role; and 5)
Outsourcing scanning.
