    The most cost-effective strategy to preserve our documentary
    resources is by controlling temperature, relative humidity, and
    pollutants. This workshop will help library staff identify the
    source of problems, monitor the environment, and develop
    strategies for affecting change in their institution. It will

Introduction to Digital Imaging Technologies for Libraries and
Archives

    Monday, June 4, 2001 from 9am - 4pm at Wake Forest University,
    Winston-Salem, NC.

    The increase in digital imaging projects for library and
    archival collections raises many issues related to selection,
    resource allocation and long-term access (preservation). Issues
    addressed in this one-day workshop include: What collection or
    resources are appropriate for digital conversion? How will the
    digital files be maintained? Who is responsible for ensuring
    future access to this digital information? To name a few. This
    workshop is designed to provide participants with the tools
    needed to make informed decisions about undertaking a scanning
    project.

    Instructor is Faye Phillips, Assistant Dean of Libraries for
    Special Collections, Louisiana State University.

    Cost is $95 full members ($85 early bird, $120 late
    registration), $105 associate users ($95 early bird, $130 late
    registration), and $135 affiliate (non-members), ($125 early
    bird, $160 late registration). Any institution within North
    Carolina qualifies for the member rate.

Digital Library Program Development

    Tuesday-Wednesday, June 5-6, 2001 from 9am-4pm at Wake Forest
    University, Winston-Salem, NC.

    As libraries and other information institutions collect and
    provide access to increasing amounts of digital data, they look
    to digital technologies to improve access to existing
    collections in a variety of formats (text, audio, video,
    photographs, objects, etc.). Long-term program management raises
    the issue of how to coherently create, integrate, and sustain
    new digital resources and programs, such as imaging projects,
    within existing resources and programs. This two-day workshop is
    meant to help provide the knowledge and expertise necessary to
    begin developing local digital resources in a responsible,
    sustainable, and systematic manner, integrated with other
    library procedures and workflow.

    Instructor Erich Kesse is Director of the Digital Library
    Center, University of Florida.

    Cost is $200 full members ($190 early bird, $225 late
    registration), $210 associate users ($200 early bird, $235 late
    registration), and $260 affiliate (non-members), ($250 early
    bird, $285 late registration). Any institution within North
    Carolina qualifies for the member rate.

    Thursday-Friday, June 7-8, 2000 at Wake Forest University,
    Winston-Salem, NC from 9am - 4pm.

    This two-day workshop provides the information necessary to
    select, convert, and provide access to an image database. It
    focuses on the technical aspects and on the issues associated
    with using digital imaging technology to convert photographic
    materials and make them accessible on the Internet. Included are
    hands-on demonstrations and exercises covering scanning
    techniques, lighting, applying metadata standards, and database
    development.

    Instructor is Grace Agnew, Assistant Director for Systems and
    Technical Services at the Georgia Tech Library and Laurel
    Crafts, Project Coordinator at the Georgia Tech Library who
    manages the digital imaging projects for the library.
