K.M. Dames and I gave a workshop at Computers in Libraries on Saturday (March 25) entitled "Digitization Project Management Essentials." The workshop covered not only the essentials of digitization project management, but also the intellectual property (IP) considerations. Attendees were from the U.S., Puerto Rico, and other countries.
Below are links to the presentation and to additional resources. Unfortunately, you cannot hear our voices giving you the "meat" (content) of the workshop. However, we'll be doing similar workshops for SLA in April (virtual/online seminars) and June (at the Annual Conference in Baltimore). The workshop in June will be a full-day and much more in-depth, if you have an opportunity to attend that one.
