Workshop: How to plan a digitization project

November 9, 2021 10 am - 12 pm

Are you struggling with where to start when it comes to digitizing your collections? Then join Northwest Digital Heritage in this online workshop on how to plan a digitization project. Ross Fuqua will discuss how to identify priority collections, setting realistic goals for your project with the capacity your organization has, what it means to establish a work flow, the importance of meta data, and more. We will also give an overview of Northwest Digital Heritage and how it can factor in to your digitization efforts. A representative from University of Oregon will give a brief overview of the Historic Oregon Newspapers program.

This workshop is hosted by Oregon Heritage and Oregon Museums Association. Attendance is free, but you must register to receive log-in details.
