NARA Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Archival Materials for Electronic Access

Description: 

The NARA Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Archival Materials for Electronic Access define approaches for creating digital surrogates for facilitating access and reproduction. The Technical Guidelines presented here are based on the procedures used by the Digital Imaging Lab of NARA’s Special Media Preservation Laboratory for digitizing archival records and the creation of production master image files, and are a revision of the 1998 NARA Guidelines for Digitizing Archival Materials for Electronic Access, which describes the imaging approach used for NARA’s pilot Electronic Access Project. This document was provided by Randy Sullivan, Digital Production Manager at the Digital Scholarship Center at University of Oregon Libraries, to supplement his presentation on photo digitization given at the SHN sponsored Digitization Basics Workshop, held at the Digital Scholarship Center at University of Oregon Libraries, on May 6, 2016.
