Digitization as Choose Your Own Adventure (F4)

Date/Time: Monday, July 16, 2018: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Speakers: Jason Eiseman, Yale Law School – Lillian Goldman Law Library; John Joergensen, Rutgers Law School Library; Leah Prescott, Georgetown Law – Edward Bennett Williams Law Library

Many librarians are scared away from digitization projects because it seems too expensive or difficult. Do you have the right equipment? How much server space do you need? How will you store the objects, and how will you provide access? These questions can seem daunting; however, the answers to these questions do not exist in a vacuum. They depend on the content, goals, and scope of the project. This session will examine how methods and standards for digitization, preservation, and access differ based on a variety of factors, and how different libraries achieve their digitization goals.
