Session: Digitization Strategies
Museums are increasingly using digital imaging as a companion to and a replacement for conventional analog photography. The uses of digital images include multimedia and web publishing, pre-press lithography, reference in collection management, conservation documentation and desktop video.
This workshop will explore the strategies of digitization for museums applications and present the various tools for image capture and quality evaluation as well as how to capitalize on in-house resources.
A technical overview will be an important part of the workshop, yet substantial time will be devoted to workflow issues and return on investment. Directed at photographers, department heads, managers, educators, administrators, deputy directors or any museum professional wishing to take advantage of the digital environment. Learn when and how to phase out analog photography where necessary while still supporting it where appropriate.
NOTE: The following topics will be addressed in the context of the previous paragraph.
