From: Holly Houghton <hhoughton>
Date: Wednesday, August 21, 2002
The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) announces: School
for Scanning: Creating, Managing, and Preserving Digital Assets
Koninklijke Bibliotheek--The National Library of the Netherlands The
Hague, The Netherlands October 16-18, 2002

The conference, which will be presented entirely in English, is
funded in part by The Council on Library and Information Resources
(CLIR) and the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC).  It is
co-sponsored by the European Commission on Preservation and Access
(ECPA) and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek--The National Library of the
Netherlands (KB).

What is the School for Scanning?  This conference provides current
and essential information for collections managers 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:

        Envisioning Our Digital Future
        Quality Control and Costs
        Copyright and Other Legal Issues
        Content Selection for Digitization
        Digital Asset Management
        Digital Longevity and Preservation
        Text and Image Digitization

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.  The complexion of this conference
evolves with the technology.  Although an audience of 150+ attendees
is expected, the number of North American participants will be
limited to 20.
