Event: Preserving Photographs in a Digital World

Found on a NYS Document Heritage Program discussion list.

“Preserving Photographs in a Digital World” Seminar
August 16-21, 2008 – George Eastman House, Rochester, New York
Sponsored by:
  • George Eastman House
  • Rochester Institute of Technology
  • Image Permanence Institute
A week-long program of lectures and workshops on photograph collection preservation techniques will expand your expertise on what materials are typically found in collections, how they deteriorate, how to store and protect them, and how preservation fits in with other collection activities.

Throughout the week, you’ll also learn about the use of digital imaging and how various image-capture, storage, display, and output strategies compare. In addition, presentations will explain the design and application of image database systems—always keeping in context the balance that must be struck between traditional and digital preservation and access.

Program Fee: $1,495
