[BKARTS] School for Scanning:Chicago-Register by May 7th!



School for Scanning: Building Good Digital Collections

Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center
June 2 - 4, 2004
The Palmer House Hilton Hotel, Chicago, Illinois

This conference is co-sponsored by the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) a Division within the American Library Association (ALA), the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), and OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc.


What is the School for Scanning?  This conference, taught by some of our nation's leading experts in digital library development, provides current, essential information for managers of paper-based collections (including photographs) 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/programs.  Although significant technical content will be presented, this is not a technician-training program.  Conference content will include:


-  Content Selection for Digitization                    -  The IT Perspective

-  Copyright and Other Legal Issues               -  Essentials of Delivery Systems

-  Text and Image Digitization                    -  Business Models for Digital Projects/Programs

-  Digitization of Multi-Media Materials            -  Outsourcing and Vendor Relations

-  Metadata                                                          -  Digital 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) should find the School for Scanning conference highly relevant and worthwhile.  Since the content and complexion of this conference evolves with the technology, it may prove beneficial to attend even if you have participated in a previous School for Scanning.  NOTE: An audience of 200 or more attendees is expected.


What does the conference cost?  The cost of the conference is $385 and the registration deadline is May 7, 2004.  Attendees will be responsible for their own travel, meal, and lodging costs.  A complimentary continental breakfast will be provided each morning at the conference site.  Registration applications will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis as seating is limited.
