[BKARTS] School for Scanning: The Hague

The Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) Announces:

School for Scanning: Creating, Managing, and Preserving Digital Assets

The Hague, The Netherlands

October 16-18, 2002
Koninklijke Bibliotheek - The National Library of the Netherlands

The Hague, The Netherlands


The conference, which will be presented entirely in English, is funded in part by The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) and the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC).  It is co-sponsored by the European Commission on Preservation and Access (ECPA) and the Koninklijke Bibliotheek - The National Library of the Netherlands (KB).


What is the School for Scanning?  This conference provides current and 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:


Envisioning Our Digital Future                                       Quality Control & Costs

Copyright & Other Legal Issues                                   Content Selection for Digitization

Metadata                                                                      Digital Asset Management

Standards                                                                     Digital Longevity & Preservation

Text & Image Digitization                    


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.  The complexion of this conference evolves with the technology.  Although an audience of 150+ attendees is expected, the number of North American participants will be limited to 20.
