TO FILM OR TO SCAN: Ann Arbor, MI



The Northeast Document Conservation Center presents
TO FILM OR TO SCAN:  Reformatting for Preservation in a Digital World

A Workshop on Preservation Microfilming and Digital Imaging
October 27-29, 1998
The University of Michigan
806 Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library, Central Campus
Ann Arbor, Michigan

Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities
The workshop is hosted by the University of Michigan Library

As we approach and enter the 21st century, digital technologies will have a
profound impact on the way institutions provide access to information.  But
will digitization also become a tool of the preservation community?

NEDCC's reformatting workshop will address this question.  Emphasis will be
divided equally between general principles of reformatting, preservation
microfilming and digital imaging for preservation.  The workshop is
designed to train project administrators in institutions to plan,
implement, and manage reformatting projects. Instruction will focus on
decision making skills.  Compliance with national standards and RLG
guidelines for preservation microfilming will be emphasized and the "best
practice" for digital projects will be discussed.  It is not a technician
training program. The program emphasizes microfilming and scanning of text
and teaches skills for: planning reformatting projects; selecting and
preparing materials; microfilm technology; introductory digital imaging
technology; inspection and quality control; and evaluating digital imaging
for preservation.

Presented by: Susan Wrynn, Director of Reprographic Services, Northeast
Document Conservation Center; Paul Conway, Head, Yale University Libraries;
Lisa Fox, Preservation Consultant; Bob Mottice, President, Mottice
Micrographics, Inc.; and guest speakers.

The price of the workshop is $250 and includes a copy of Introduction to
Imaging, by Howard Besser & Jennifer Trent.
