Developing Strategic Goals for Digitization


Before beginning a digitization project, it is essential to first ensure that the physical collection is properly managed, organized, and described. Thus, this session will introduce the basic fundamentals for archival collections management, including appraisal, accessioning, arrangement, and description. This presentation was given by Jennifer O'Neal at the Sustainable Heritage Network Workshop held in Washington State University, Pullman, WA on October, 2014. The session provided attendees with applied knowledge, hands-on demonstrations and practical exercises to implement effective collections management policies, procedures, and workflows. In addition, the session also provided numerous handouts and forms on this topic.
