The Theory and Practice of Digitization Program

Session #2: Digitization Training


In Session #2, we get into the hands-on portion of our work. We will learn about the best ways to handle research materials for digitization, using the materials that the cohort members have chosen. These come from a wide array of formats, including monographs, periodicals, and archival folders.

  • Best practices for handling (working with) rare and/or special materials (fragile or stable)

  • How to choose and use a scanner and accessories for your purposes

  • Image processing best practices

Our guest speakers will be Brittany Centeno, UTL Preservation Librarian, and Kiana Fekette, Head of Digitization Services.

Cohort members have the opportunity to schedule additional time with library staff to consult on the digitization of their materials.
