Do you want to start a digitization project but aren’t sure where to start? These free workshops are for you!
The Ohio Local History Alliance and the Ohio Memory Program are partnering to offer four regional digitization workshops this summer. The workshops will cover selecting materials for digitization, digitization best practices, online access options, possible funding sources, and digital preservation tips. Participants will come away from the workshops with a broad knowledge of the components of a digitization project, as well as general plan for a digital project. Participants should come prepared to share what collections they are considering for digitization.
The workshops will be held from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on the dates listed below:
Thursday, July 28, 2016 – Hancock Historical Museum (Findlay, Ohio)
Monday, August 1, 2016 – Quaker Heritage Center (Wilmington, Ohio)
Wednesday, August 3, 2016 – The Castle (Marietta, Ohio)
Friday, August 5, 2016 – Dennison Railroad Depot (Dennison, Ohio)
Morning refreshments, sponsored by the Ohio Local History Alliance, will be provided. To register, please visit https://connect.ohiohistory.org/workshops/ohio-local-history-alliance/digitization. Questions regarding the workshops can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-297-2533.
