TO FILM OR TO SCAN SEMINAR IN ST. PAUL



Northeast Document Conservation Center presents

Preservation Options in a Digital World: To Film or To Scan
A Seminar on Preservation Microfilming and
Digital Imaging of Paper-Based Materials

March 27, 28, 29, 2001

at the Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul, Minnesota

The seminar is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
It is co-sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society and the Upper Midwest
Conservation Association.

In the 21st century, digital technologies will have a profound impact on the
way institutions manage and deliver information.  But will digitization also
become a tool of the preservation community?  Will microfilm become
obsolete?

This seminar will evaluate an emerging digital technology against a set of
preservation criteria and a proven preservation microfilming model.

It is designed to teach administrators critical thinking and criteria for
evaluation: how to plan and implement projects, how to evaluate technology
as a preservation strategy, and how to understand the relationship between
costs and quality.  Instruction will focus on compliance with national and
international standards as well as best practices for both microfilm and
digital imaging.  This is not a technician training program.  It is a
management seminar with a preservation focus.

After an introduction to fundamental preservation strategies, the faculty
will present lessons learned from a decade of investigations in the
viability of using digital technology for preservation purposes.  The
curriculum includes in-depth discussion of the following topics:
7       preparation, selection, and analysis of source material
7       microfilm quality control
7       the basics of digital imaging technology
7       project workflow
7       preservation concerns
7       cost and quality
7       microfilm/digital hybrid approaches

Presented by:
Becky Ryder, Preservation Librarian, University of Kentucky
Bob Mottice, President, Mottice Micrographics, Inc.
Paul Conway, Head, Preservation Department, Yale University Library
Millie O Connell, NEDCC Preservation Consultant, and guest speakers.
