Introduction to Digital Imaging Technologies for Libraries and
Archives
Wake Forest University
Winston-Salem, NC
Monday, June 4, 2001
9am - 4pm

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

    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.

    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.
