UNLV University Libraries will host the Nevada Statewide Large-Scale Digitization Workshop on Friday, May 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Goldfield Room at Lied Library.
The workshop is funded through a Library Services and Technology Act grant.
The day-long workshop with cultural heritage colleagues from across Nevada will include a day of learning, information-sharing, and collaboration. This symposium will offer panel sessions, hands-on activities, and facilitated discussions to help organizations of all sizes and resource levels ramp up digitization activities and increase access to unique collections. All attendees will leave the symposium with concrete plans customized for their organization. Sessions will help participants:
- Understand what defines large-scale digitization vs. other types of digital projects
- Learn about funding models for organizations of all sizes/staffing levels
- Hear lessons learned from the 2017 LSTA-funded Ramping Up digitization grant project
- Visit the “Equipment Buffet” to “shop” for digitization equipment
- Discuss the challenges of large-scale and how workflows can be evolved
- Brainstorm new partnerships and share your vision of Nevada’s digital future
- Tour the UNLV University Libraries digitization lab
A limited number of travel grants are available for Nevada residents. Please RSVP at http://bit.ly/DigitizationWorkshop.
Morning coffee/pastries and catered lunch will be included for all attendees.
Funds for this project have been provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records.
