Description

Please join UNLV University Libraries and cultural heritage colleagues from across Nevada for a day of learning, information-sharing, and collaboration. This symposium will offer panel sessions, hands-on activities, and facilitated discussions to help organizations of all sizes and resource levels ramp up digitization activities and increase access to unique collections. All attendees will leave the symposium with concrete plans customized for their organization. Sessions will help participants:

  • Understand what defines large-scale digitization vs. other types of digital projects
  • Learn about funding models for organizations of all sizes/staffing levels
  • Hear lessons learned from the 2017 LSTA-funded Ramping Up digitization grant project
  • Visit the “Equipment Buffet” to “shop” for digitization equipment
  • Discuss the challenges of large-scale and how workflows can be evolved 
  • Brainstorm new partnerships and share your vision of Nevada’s digital future
  • Tour the UNLV University Libraries digitization lab

Morning coffee/pastries and catered lunch will be included for all attendees. 

Please RSVP.
