EARLY BIRD DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 23, 2001!


School for Scanning: Delray Beach
Creating, Managing, and Preserving Digital Assets
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center
December 3-5,2001
Delray Beach, Florida

The conference is funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the
National Endowment for the Humanities.  It is cosponsored by the Southeast
Florida Library Information Network, (SEFLIN), and SOLINET (Southeastern
Library Network).

What is the School for Scanning?  This conference provides current,
essential information for collections managers who are seeking to create,
manage, and preserve digital assets.  Participants will leave the conference
better equipped to make informed choices regarding management of their
digital projects.  Although significant technical content will be presented,
this is not a technician-training program.  Conference content will include:

Project Management                              Collaborative Project Models
Copyright and Other Legal Issues                Text and Image Digitization
Content Selection for Digitization              Descriptive, Structural, and
Administrative
Standards                                            Metadata
Quality Control and Costs                       Digital Longevity and Preservation

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 $325 for early
bird registration postmarked on or before October 19, 2001, and $400 for
late registration, deadline November 9, 2001. 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 Information at <www.nedcc.org>.  Registration applications
will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.
