Workshop on scanning

From: Debbie Saryan <saryan>
Date: Friday, April 30, 2004
School for Scanning: Building Good Digital Collections
The Palmer House Hilton Hotel, Chicago, Illinois
June 2 4, 2004
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center

Registration Deadline: May 7, 2004

This conference is co-sponsored by the Association for Library
Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) a Division within the
American Library Association (ALA), the Center for Research
Libraries (CRL), and OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc.

What is the School for Scanning?  This conference, taught by some of
our nation's leading experts in digital library development,
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/programs.  Although significant
technical content will be presented, this is not a
technician-training program.  Conference content will include:

    Content Selection for Digitization
    The IT Perspective
    Copyright and Other Legal Issues
    Essentials of Delivery Systems
    Text and Image Digitization
    Business Models for Digital Projects/Programs
    Digitization of Multi-Media Materials
    Outsourcing and Vendor Relations
    Digital 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) should find the School for Scanning
conference highly relevant and worthwhile.  Since the content and
complexion of this conference evolves with the technology, it may
prove beneficial to attend even if you have participated in a
previous School for Scanning.  NOTE: An audience of 200 or more
attendees is expected.

What does the conference cost?  The cost of the conference is $385
and the registration deadline is May 7, 2004.  Attendees will be
responsible for their own travel, meal, and lodging costs.  A
complimentary continental breakfast will be provided each morning at
the conference site.  Registration applications will be accepted on
a first-come-first-served basis as seating is limited.
