2017 U. Manitoba Digitization Basics SHN Workshop: Audio Digitization

Led by Guha Shankar, Folklife Specialist at the Folklife Center, Library of Congress, and Michael Wynne, Digital Applications Librarian, Washington State University (WSU). This hands-on session on audio digitization was a part of the 2017 U. Manitoba Workshop "Digitization Basics." This session covered project planning, conversion, metadata, basic editing, quality control, and more. While the session focused on audio cassette digitization, many of the details described in the presentation slides and handouts apply to any audio digitization project. In addition to audio digitization, the session covered basic oral history techniques for those looking to document cultural heritage and preserve that documentation digitally.

FADGI Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Cultural Heritage Materials [DRAFT]

The Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Cultural Heritage Materials: Creation of Raster Image Master Files represents shared best practices followed by agencies participating in the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) Still Image Working Group for digitization of cultural heritage materials. This group is involved in a cooperative effort to develop common digitization guidelines for still image materials (such as textual content, maps, and photographic prints and negatives) found in cultural heritage institutions. 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.

NARA Technical Guidelines for Digitizing Archival Materials for Electronic Access

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.
