Planning Your Digitization Project: Getting the Most out of your Time, Resources, and Collections

Instructor: Maureen Jennings, Safdie Architects

Description:  This half day workshop will give participants an overview of the basics of digitization project planning—including determining project scope and budget, mapping intellectual goals to physical workflow, and planning for technology and staffing requirements—to get the most out of your newly-created digital assets. Strategies and resources for long-term digital asset management will be discussed to cover the entire life cycle of digital assets created as a result of digitization projects.

Participants will also walk through an “if/then” decision tree considering the essential questions of digitization hopes and needs, which can then be used in the development of a concrete, personalized plan.

Please Note: Lunch will not be provided, but attendees are welcomed and encouraged to bring their lunch!

Location: National Archives at Boston,  380 Trapelo Rd, Waltham, MA 02452.
