To Film or To Scan - TX

Northeast Document Conservation Center Presents
Preservation Options in a Digital World:=20
To Film or To Scan - Texas

A Workshop on Preservation Microfilming and Digital Imaging
of Paper-Based Materials
October 26-28, 1999

At The University of Texas at Austin, Perry-Castaneda Library, Austin, TX

The workshop is funded in part by the National Endowment for Humanities.
The workshop is hosted by the General Libraries, University of Texas at
and AMIGOS Bibliographic Council, Inc.

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.

The workshop will explore two reformatting technologies: preservation
microfilming and digital imaging.  The similarities and marked differences
of the technologies will be compared and evaluated.  The faculty will
discuss lessons learned from preservation microfilming projects that can be
applied to digital imaging projects.

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 teaches skills for:
=B7 planning reformatting projects
=B7 selecting and preparing materials
=B7 microfilm technology
=B7 introductory digital imaging technology
=B7 inspection and quality control=20
=B7 evaluating digital imaging for preservation=20
