Digitization:¬† we all know it‚Äôs the one way to improve preservation and access to collections and bring our institutions into the 21st century, but it is a daunting task.¬† Choices need to be made on what to digitize, how to digitize, where ¬†to host the digital records, and how to ensure those records are maintained and preserved.¬† Whether to tackle the effort in-house or to outsource is one of the first decisions to make. ¬†For smaller institutions, the infrastructure required to handle digitization in-house is typically not available, so this webinar explained why you may wish to choose to use a vendor for your project, how to do so, and what to expect from the process.
