As institutions ramp up digitization efforts, cultural heritage professionals are faced with a wide range of challenges and opportunities. This unconference-style workshop is intended for those interested in or currently involved with large-scale digitization models. The workshop will consist of lightning presentations by members of the library and museum communities who are engaged with both large-scale and small-scale digitization and metadata efforts.

The core of this workshop, however, will be participant-defined and tailored to address specific institutional challenges in hopes of providing a practical forum for solving problems related to large-scale digitization. Potential discussion topics might include: “big data,” project management, audio/video, automation, discovery of digital collections, digital imaging technology, and more. All participants should plan on actively contributing to the discussion and should be prepared to share questions (and practices) with the group.
Maximum Participants: 30
Fee: $50
