Digitization Basics Workshop – Feb. 18th

Instructors: Mike Meade and Erik Moore

Date: 18 February 2017, 1pm – 4pm

Location: Harriet Irving Library, Milham Room (#100)

Why digitize a photograph, historic primary text, or a collection of objects? Join Erik Moore and Mike Meade, of UNB Libraries’ Centre for Digital Scholarship, in exploring some fundamental tools and skills of digitization. Whether you’re an undergraduate assigned a digitization project, a grad student augmenting a thesis or dissertation, or a researcher fulfilling part of a Tri-Agency grant, this workshop will help you consider numerous aspects of artifact digitization, including identifying your intended audience, dealing with limitations of available equipment, producing high-quality images for the web, developing metadata, using and re-using your digitized work, and considering your digital project’s life cycle. We’ll also give you an inside look at digital imaging operations in the Centre for Digital Scholarship, and provide you with some resources for further exploration.
