Ball State Digitization Workshop Held at the Indiana State Library

On July 18, 2007, several members of the Ball State University Libraries’ Metadata and Digital Initiatives Unit (MADI) conducted a workshop at the Indiana State Library entitled Digitization, Metadata, and CONTENTdm for Compliance with the Library Services and Technology Act and the Indiana Memory Project. The session was arranged by Connie Rendfeld, LSTA Consultant for the Indiana State Library.

The one-day event was filled to capacity and was taught in three sections by Jonathan M. Brinley, Metadata and Digital Initiatives Developer, Amanda A. Hurford, Digital Initiatives Multimedia Developer, and James A. Bradley, Head of Metadata and Digital Initiatives.

Workshop sessions were designed to provide vital information on artifact digitization, metadata production, and content management — specifically tailored to the archival standards of the Indiana Memory Project and to organizations receiving Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Digitization Grants.
