University Libraries’ Personnel to Conduct Digitization Workshop for LSTA Grant Recipients at the Indiana State Library July 18, 2007

Ball State University Libraries’ Metadata and Digital Initiatives librarians will share their expertise at an Indiana State Library workshop on Wednesday, July 18, 2007.

The one-day digitization workshop is being offered to assist Indiana libraries that are recipients of Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grants for 2007-2008 and ones who will use CONTENTdm Acquisition Station software from the Indiana State Library.

The workshop will be team-taught by James A. Bradley, Head of Metadata and Digital Initiatives; Jonathan M. Brinley, Metadata and Digital Initiatives Developer; and Amanda A. Hurford, Digital Initiatives Multimedia Developer. Topics covered will include digitization processes, archival standards, metadata production, and preservation of digital objects in a content management system, specifically CONTENTdm.

According to Bradley, the focus of the training is to present the attendees with various strategies for completing a successful digital library project.

Connie Rendfeld, LSTA Consultant at the Indiana State Library, reports that more than 30 people from throughout Indiana have already registered to attend the workshop.
