Workshop on scanning

From: Julie Carlson <jcarlson<-a>
Date: Wednesday, January 5, 2005
The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) presents
School for Scanning: Building Good Digital Collections
The Boston Park Plaza Hotel and Towers
Boston, Massachusetts
June 1-3, 2005

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,
photographic, audio, and video collections who are seeking to
create, manage, and preserve digital assets.  Although significant
technical content will be presented, this is not a
technician-training program.  Conference content will include:

    Content Selection for Digitization
    Copyright and Other Legal Issues
    Text and Image Digitization
    Audio and Video Digitization
    The IT Perspective
    Essentials of Delivery Systems
    Business Models for Digital Projects/Programs
    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, photographic,
audio, and video collections 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. An audience of 200 or more attendees
is expected.

What does the conference cost?  The cost of the conference is $410
and the registration deadline is May 3, 2005.  Registration
applications will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.
