Are you thinking of launching a digitization project? Or, if you are well into one, would you like to identify ways to make it move forward in a more efficient manner? In this program, a team of UMBC librarians will share how their staff has incorporated the use of partnerships and collaboration throughout their digital collections workflow. Tips for achieving collaboration, identifying potential partnerships and best practices for digitization, and metadata issues and evaluation are among the topics to be covered. Attendees will also tour the UMBC Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery. A special showing of the print and digitized photographs from The Lewis Hine Collection containing socially important images of child labor will be included in the tour.

This program has been approved for 4.5 hours of continuing education.

A buffet lunch with a vegan option is included. Directions to UMBC are available at http://www.umbc.edu/aboutumbc/directions.php.

All vehicles require a parking permit which will be provided at no cost to attendees. To get a parking permit for the event, contact Michelle Flinchbaugh, flinchba@umbc.edu. Please indicate if handicap access is needed. Parking permits will be mailed along with a campus parking map.
