    • Digitization Experiences Hey everyone! I would love to hear some digitization experiences you've had, and how you might have overcame any difficulties. Digitization is so important to the industry today, and it's important to have a space to discuss/rant about how the act of digitizing isn't an easy process! I can't wait to read your stories and thoughts regarding this.

Questions to Consider: - Uniqueness of materials? - Does it support research or instruction? - Does it fit into your organization’s mission and strategic plan? - Conditions for digitization-is there a preservation need? - Are there legal/ethical issues (copyright, privacy, & culturally sensitive) - Is it feasible? Do you have the right equipment? What about storage? What format should we use? - Is there adequate and available funding? Infrastructure? Space? Staffing? Motives & Rationale: - The forms of digital documentation range from the simple scanning of an image, processing of a text, to highly sophisticated visualization. Databases that are accessible through the internet are the most common. Adapted to users’ education and research needs digitization projects seek to do the following: 1. Serves and facilitates education & research 2. Enhances the accessibility of the general public to cultural heritage 3. Democratizes culture by decreasing of social, cultural, and geographic boundaries 4. Revolutionize visitor experience 5. Improves administration - Transforms the practice of research, learning, curating, and engagement - Collections management - Preservation - Outreach and engagement 6. Creates, real-time virtual object manipulation and group interactivity for multimedia retrieval, virtual galleries or audio-visual distribution. 7. Adds value to collections and associated services of archives, libraries, museums, and creative arts organizations. Digitization can be an effective tool for storytelling & communicating your programs by offering high quality digital content for lasting value: Technical: - Accessibility - Digital copies are nearly indestructible, guarantee undiminished quality - Collections can be shared, exchanged, transferred quickly and safety and stored in small space - Limits the exposure of hidden, inaccessible, sensitive or damaged items. - Creates rich representations such as 3-D visualization Economic: - Digital products could generate untapped revenue through ticketing, ecommerce, ebooks, virtual tours, etc. - Public outreach, publicity & marketing could fuel tourism industry Using multimedia to interlink rich linear and nonlinear materials to hear multiple voices: - Open and shareable - Well-designed - Sustainable and scalable - Audience centered - Evaluated and enhanced - Distributed across multiple platforms Project Planning & Activities: Staffing Resources: - Training, policies, software and hardware tools, recruitment, induction, professional development and performance management. - Depending on the size of the institution, staff members may fill multiple roles.
