Conservators might be interested in taking a course dealing with
scanner and camera imaging performance.

Intended Audience: Managers, engineers, and technicians interested
in evaluating and monitoring scanner and camera performance and
emerging guidelines.  This includes manufacturers, service
providers, and content custodians.  A working knowledge of digital
scanner and camera operation and the common technologies is assumed.

I also point out a few choice talks:
