To Film or To Scan



The Northeast Document Conservation Center presents Reformatting for
Preservation in a Digital World: To Scan or To Film: A Workshop on
Preservation Microfilming and Digital Scanning; October 7-9, 1997 at the
University of California at Los Angeles, Department of Library and
Information Science in the Graduate School of Education and Information
Studies; Moore Hall, Room 3140, Los Angeles, CA  90095-1520

As we approach and enter the 21st century, digital technologies will have a
profound impact on the way institutions provide access to information.  But
will digitization also become a tool of the preservation community?
NEDCC's reformatting workshop will address this question.  Emphasis will be
divided equally between general principles of reformatting, preservation
microfilming and digital scanning for preservation.  The workshop is
designed to train project administrators in institutions to plan,
implement, and manage reformatting projects. Instruction will focus on
decision making skills.  Compliance with national standards and RLG
guidelines for preservation microfilming will be emphasized and the "best
practice" for digital projects will be discussed.  It is not a technician
training program. The program includes hands-on experience and teaches
skills for:

planning reformatting projects
selecting and preparing materials
selecting and evaluating a vendor
microfilm and imaging technology
inspection and quality control
evaluating digital imaging for preservation
The sessions will introduce preservation microfilming and digital imaging
technologies and compare their commonalties and differences.
