Workshop: To Film or To Scan

From: Gay Tracy <tracy>
Date: Tuesday, January 19, 1999
Northeast Document Conservation Center Presents
Preservation Options in a Digital World: To Film or To Scan
A Workshop on Preservation Microfilming and Digital Imaging of
Paper-Based Materials
May 11-13, 1999
Denver Public Library
10 West Fourteenth Avenue Parkway
Denver, Colorado

The workshop is funded in part by the National Endowment for
Humanities. The workshop is hosted by the Denver Public Library

As we approach and enter the 21st century, digital technologies will
have a profound impact on the way institutions provide access to
information.  But will digitization also become a tool of the
preservation community? NEDCC's reformatting workshop will address
this question.

The workshop will explore two reformatting technologies:
preservation microfilming and digital imaging.  The similarities and
marked differences of the technologies will be compared and
evaluated.  The faculty will discuss lessons learned from
preservation microfilming projects that can be applied to digital
imaging projects.

The workshop is designed to train project administrators in
institutions to plan, implement, and manage reformatting projects.
Instruction will focus on decision making skills.  Compliance with
national standards and RLG guidelines for preservation microfilming
will be emphasized and the "best practice" for digital projects will
be discussed.  It is not a technician training program.  The program
teaches skills for:

    *   planning reformatting projects
    *   selecting and preparing materials
    *   microfilm technology
    *   introductory digital imaging technology
    *   inspection and quality control
    *   evaluating digital imaging for preservation

Presented by: Susan Wrynn, Director of Reprographic Services,
Northeast Document Conservation Center; Paul Conway, Head, Yale
University Libraries; Becky Ryder, Preservation Librarian,
University of Kentucky; Bob Mottice, President, Mottice
Micrographics, Inc.; and a guest speaker.

Registration Information: The cost of the workshop is $250.
Attendance is limited to 18 participants accepted on a
first-come-first-served basis.  The number of applicants from one
institution will be limited.  The registration fee of $250 includes
a copy of Introduction to Imaging, by Howard Besser & Jennifer
