Outsourcing Digitization

Digitization:  we all know it’s the one way to improve preservation and access to collections and bring our institutions into the 21st century, but it is a daunting task.  Choices need to be made on what to digitize, how to digitize, where  to host the digital records, and how to ensure those records are maintained and preserved.  Whether to tackle the effort in-house or to outsource is one of the first decisions to make.  For smaller institutions, the infrastructure required to handle digitization in-house is typically not available, so this webinar explained why you may wish to choose to use a vendor for your project, how to do so, and what to expect from the process.
