Caring for Originals During Digitization Projects

Are you planning a digitization project at your institution? Have you considered the implications of such a project on the physical materials that you will be digitizing? It is important that strategies for preserving originals be included in planning digitization projects. This class explores the ways digitization provides an opportunity to stabilize, re-house and repair materials being digitized. We will discuss care and handling techniques to ensure that the original objects are not damaged during the digitization process. This class will discuss selecting equipment and setting up spaces for digitization with the physical preservation of originals in mind.
