School for Scanning: Chicago Issues of Preservation and Access for
Paper-Based Collections

June 2-4, 1999 Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation
Center At the Chicago Historical Society, Clark Street at North
Avenue, Chicago, IL

The conference is funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  It is cosponsored by
The Getty Information Institute, the Chicago Historical Society, the
National Park Service.

What is the School for Scanning?  This conference provides a
rationale for the use of digital technology by managers of
paper-based collections in cultural institutions.  Specifically, it
equips participants to discern the applicability of digital
technology in their given circumstances and prepares them to make
critical decisions regarding management of digital projects.
Although technical issues will be addressed, this is not a
technician training program.  Conference content will include:

    Developing Institutional Infrastructures to Support Digital
        Initiatives Content Selection for Digitization Text and
        Image Scanning Quality Control and Costs Copyright, Fair
        Use, and Other Legal Issues Surrounding Digital Technology
        The Essentials of Metadata Digital Preservation: Theory and
        Reality Maximizing the Utility of Digital Information

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 150 or more attendees is expected.
