School for Scanning: Seattle
Issues of Preservation and Access for Paper-Based Collections
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center
September 18-20, 2000
The University of Washington
HUB Ballroom, Seattle, WA

The conference is funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the
National Endowment for the Humanities.  It is cosponsored by the University
of Washington Libraries and the National Park Service.

What is the School for Scanning?  This conference provides a rationale for
the use of digital technology by managers of paper-based collections in
cultural institutions.  Specifically, it equips participants to discern the
applicability of digital technology in their given circumstances and
prepares them to make critical decisions regarding management of digital
projects.  Although technical issues will be addressed, this is not a
technician training program.  Conference content will include:

- Managing Digital Assets                       - The Essentials of Metadata
- Content Selection for Digitization            - Digital Preservation: Theory and
- Text and Image Scanning                       - Digital Products and Process
- Quality Control and Costs                     - Current Research Projects
- Copyright, Fair Use & Other Legal Issues Surrounding Digital Technology

Who Should Attend?  Administrators within cultural institutions, as well as
librarians, archivists, curators, and other cultural or natural resource
managers dealing with paper-based collections, including photographs, will
find the School for Scanning conference highly relevant and worthwhile.
Since the complexion of this conference evolves with the technology, it
would be beneficial to attend even if you have participated in a previous
School for Scanning.  An audience of 200 or more attendees is expected.

What does the Conference Cost?  The cost of the conference is $295 for early
bird registration postmarked on or before August 4, 2000, and $365 for late
registration, deadline August 25, 2000. Participants will be responsible for
all of their travel, meals, and lodging costs.  A complimentary continental
breakfast will be provided each morning at the conference site.  For
information about special hotel and airline fares, see the Registration
