meta/morphosis: a University of Kentucky film-to-digital institute

Note: Please send inquiries and replies to There are only a few spaces left in this institute.

September 6-7, University of Kentucky Libraries is hosting a two-day institute about incorporating microfilm-to-digital solutions into digitization programs. UK is currently participating in the National Newspaper Digitization Program ( with NEH and Library of Congress and is the only one of the six awardees using an in-house process. The Preservation and Digital Programs group at UK Libraries has created a concentrated learning experience limited to 25 participants to learn how to incorporate the microfilm-to-digital solutions (either in-house or outsourced) into a digitization program.

The timing of the institute will allow participants who are considering applying for the next round of the NDNP to incorporate what they learn into applications. For those still contemplating these issues, the institute will provide a great way to quickly survey the landscape and to gather information on building your digitization program.
