Event: Meta-morphosis: a Film-to-Digital Institute, Sept. 12 - 13, 2007

This announcement was posted on IMAGELIB:


Are you interested in converting microfilm holdings into digital objects? Whether you plan to outsource this process or you plan to do this in-house, "meta-morphosis: a film-to-digital institute" is a professional development opportunity you will not want to miss.

University of Kentucky Libraries will be sponsoring this event again September 12-13, 2007 on the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, Kentucky. The institute is two jam packed days that will help you get started or improve your current program. Highlights of meta-morphosis will include sessions on:
  • Collection evaluation
  • Microfilm evaluation
  • Good imaging practices
  • Quality assessment
  • Production infrastructure
  • Content management
  • Writing an RFP
  • Selecting a vendor
  • Managing workflow
Participants will have opportunities to get specific questions answered by experts and will have an opportunity to meet with vendors to see what services are available in the marketplace.

Comments from past participants...
"This was exactly what I needed to figure out what needs to happen with our project!" and "Thank you for a well-organized, highly informative two days! The size of the group was perfect for interaction."
Registration will be opening soon, so save the date if you are interested in attending. Seats will be limited and registration will fill quickly so if you are interested be prepared to register quickly. I will send out the link to registration soon. I hope you will be able to join us in beautiful Lexington September 12-13!

In the announcement, Mary Molinaro (Director, Preservation and Digital Programs University of Kentucky Libraries) said she would answer questions for anyone who is interested in the event.

Once I have the link for the event, I'll update this post.
