Target Audience: Any library that wants to digitize government information in their collections, but doesn't know how to do it
1. Participants will be equipped to plan and manage a digitization project in their library.
2. Participants will understand digitization methods and techniques.
This program is also co-sponsored by Legal Information Preservation Alliance (LIPA). Government information is a significant element of law library collections. An increasing amount of it is 'born digital'. Many libraries have tangible collections they would like to digitize in order to market, and extend the use of those collections. Other libraries may wish to capture born digital government information that may not be preserved by government agencies. Many law libraries are beginning to think about planning digitization projects, but don't know exactly how to go about it. This workshop will give participants the knowledge that they need to plan and execute a digitization project. This workshop will NOT address intellectual property rights. It will be assumed that the digitizing institution has permission to digitize the collections.
