Workshop on scanning

From: Karen Brown <kebrown>
Date: Thursday, May 24, 2001
School for Scanning: Creating, Managing, and Preserving Digital
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center
Delray Beach, Florida
December 3-5, 2001

The conference is funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation
and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  It is cosponsored by
SEFLIN (Southeast Florida Library Information Network, Inc.) and
SOLINET (Southeastern Library Network).

What is the School for Scanning?  This conference provides current,
essential information for managers of paper-based collections
(including photographs) who are seeking to create, manage, and
preserve digital assets. Participants will leave the conference
better equipped to make informed choices regarding management of
their digital projects.  Although significant technical content will
be presented, this is not a technician-training program.  Conference
content will include:

    Project Management
    Copyright and Other Legal Issues
    Content Selection for Digitization
    Quality Control and Costs
    Collaborative Project Models
    Text and Image Digitization
    Descriptive, Structural, and Administrative Metadata
    Digital Longevity and Preservation

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 200 or more attendees is expected.

What does the Conference Cost?  The cost of the conference is $325
for early bird registration postmarked on or before October 19,
2001, and $400 for late registration, deadline November 9, 2001.
Participants will be responsible for their travel, meals, and
lodging costs.  A complimentary continental breakfast will be
provided each morning at the conference site. For information about
special hotel and airline fares, see the Registration Information
section at <URL:>.  Registration applications
will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.
