Digitization cost calculator

Your description
Bibliodata's insight:

This calculator aggregates available data on the cost and time it takes to perform various activities associated with library digitization. The calculator provides estimates not accuracy, as each institution is different. The tool provides average time and cost information from other institutions who have donated their data to this project. Data is currently limited. This calculator was built by Joyce Chapman, please contact joyce.chapman@duke.edu for more information

Robots in Finland: How a Small Open Hardware Project Sparked International Collaboration Across 10 Timezones and 5,000 Miles : OSCON 2014 - O'Reilly Conferences, July 20 - 24, 2014, Portland, OR

Robots in Finland: How a Small Open Hardware Project Sparked International Collaboration Across 10 Timezones and 5,000 Miles : OSCON 2014 - O'Reilly Conferences, July 20 - 24, 2014, Portland, OR | Digitization&Metadata | Scoop.it
This talk shares the success story of how a small open hardware project used an Arduino/Python archival digitization robot to spark an international collaboration spanning cultures and continents. The talk focuses on how the collaboration came to be, how the teams used tools like 3D printing and video to work together across 5000+ miles, and how other OS projects can create similar partnerships.
Bibliodata's insight:

Project Gado launched in 2010 with the goal of creating an open source archival scanning robot that small archives could use to digitize their photographic collections. In 2012, the project released the Gado 2, a $500 Arduino and Python-based robot which could scan historical photos at archival resolution, fully autonomously.

Digitisation Map

Digitisation Map | Digitization&Metadata | Scoop.it
Bibliodata's insight:

We invite you to add your initiative to the Map of the European digitisation landscape a project that has been developed by Succeed, which aims to identify active projects, centres of competence, networks and any other initiatives to help pinpoint stakeholders, future needs and options for the exploitation of digitised content.

The map will provide support for helping every heritage institution to find the networks or centres of competence that best match its particular needs, and for forecasting research and implementation challenges and proposing what measures must be taken to address the requirements of digitisation programmes.

Right now you can find 290 initiatives including networks, projects, private companies and institutions active in digitisation and related fields on the Map of the European digitisation landscape .
