Digital Imaging for Libraries and Archives

See Draft of Workshop Schedule Below

This 2-day workshop is offered by Cornell University Library/Department of Preservation and Conservation and focuses on the managerial aspects of building digital image collections. The goal of the workshop is to provide participants with practical strategies that represent current and emerging standards, best practices, and sound decision making. The lectures and discussions will aim to enable participants to:

* set realistic goals and objectives
* understand the basic principles of benchmarking for conversion, quality control, use, and metadata creation
*plan and manage projects
*consider long-term management issues including preservation and mainstreaming

This workshop is intended for librarians, archivists, curators, administrators, technologists, and others who are contemplating or implementing digital imaging programs. A prerequisite for attendance will be a Web-based tutorial that will introduce vocabulary and key concepts, and cover the core components of a technical infrastructure to support digital imaging projects and programs. Completion of the tutorial will assure that workshop participants possess the same base-level knowledge prior to attending the workshop. The tutorial will become accessible in early October 2000 (
