Introduction to Library Digital Projects on February 6

On Friday, February 6, the Professional Development Committee of the Librarians' Assembly, in conjunction with the Library Digital Initiative, is presenting a program entitled Introduction to Library Digital Projects. It will take place from 1 until 3 pm in the Lamont Forum Room. The program is designed for Harvard library staff who have not had experience with planning or implementing library digital projects. It will cover basic components of digital projects, such as selection, systems, reformatting, metadata, storage, preservation, access, and security, as well as overall digital project management and planning. Also presented will be a selection of digital library projects at Harvard and beyond. Refreshments will be served.

The presentation will be followed by optional tours of the Harvard College Library Digital Imaging Group (HCL DIG) facilities in Widener Library, led by Bill Comstock, manager of HCL DIG. RSVP to Manda Salls,, to reserve your place on one of the HCL DIG tours, as space is limited.

The Digital Imaging Group manages a program for high-quality scanning and digital photography, in support of initiatives to create digital collections of permanent research value in the Harvard libraries.

Presenters for the February 6 program are Sue Kriegsman, digital library projects manager, and Wendy Gogel, digital library projects liaison, both of the Harvard University Library's Office for Information Systems.
