Digitization workshop

Archives workshopIn June I was asked to give a workshop by the Hong Kong Archives Society on the topic of digitization.

After the lecture I recreated the lecture to share with everyone. Hope you enjoy it.

Abstract

Digitization is becoming a standard practice for libraries, archives and museum around the world. No longer a luxury, LAMs utilize digitization as a part of a larger collections management policy. Today every institution must create a practice that is based on a standard and consistent with their institutional mission and vision.

Robert Trio, Project Officer for Technology at the Hong Kong Maritime Museum, will conduct a workshop that explores different strategies in building a building a digitization policy. The areas will discuss capture, documentation, access and long-term sustainability. He will also discuss a recent digitization project that the museum undertook in partnership with Kyoto University.

The workshop will be designed as an open discussion. Although technical specifications will be a part of the talk, the workshop is designed to focus more on the issues that institutions must face and consider.
