Abstract


Audience: Digital Library Personnel, Digital Lab Managers, Individuals interested in digitization

Application: slides, historical materials, photographs, government documents, text based information

Post-processing can be performed in a variety of different ways depending on the type of material being edited. How you choose to process a photograph should be very different from how you might handle a book, for instance. This workshop will cover best practices to use when scanning a variety of materials and how to edit images using Photoshop to optimize the experience of your customer and/or viewer. The workshop will also cover questions to ask before beginning a project such as: (1) Who is my audience? (2) What is the purpose of this collection? (3) What is the material being scanned? (4)How will this information be accessed? (5) Will this item be digitally preserved? and other questions that will help ensure you provide the end user with the most appropriate product.
