K.M. Dames and I wrote an article for the spring Library Journal netConnect supplement. Our article is entitled "Digitizing 101." Since Kevin and I did several workshops together on digitization, we were asked to write an article-version of our workshop. That was tall order given the word count limit, so what we focused on for the article were "detail how to bring collections online, from copyright issues to outsourcing scanning" with a heavy emphasis material selection and copyright.
Kevin and I were also fortunate to participate in a podcast for Library Journal that discusses the article and other digitization related topics. Also on the podcast was Lotfi Belkhir, CEO of Kirtas and the podcast was moderated by Jay Datema, the Technology Editor for Library Journal. One cool thing Jay did was to create a time index the podcast on the web site and provided links to those topics we discussed at those times. For example, when the iPRES conference was mentioned at 45:33, there is a link to the iPRES conference page.
