New state librarian leads digitization effort to expand reach of archives

New state librarian leads digitization effort to expand reach of archives | Information Professional PD | Scoop.it

Sanjay Talwani:

"HELENA -- Not that long ago, the Montana State Library, in charge of making state documents available to the public, circulated just a few hundred publications outside its walls each year.
Now, in just the past three months, the library has circulated some 18,000 digital documents, and what's available is vast: state agency reports going back years, and data-rich natural resource and geographic information resources covering everything form moisture levels to property ownership to oil and gas leases.
Jennie Stapp, the state library director since Jan. 1, is driving that digital train. Just nine years out of graduate school, she figures she's the youngest state librarian in the nation. She was, most recently, the digital library director and library's chief information officer. She succeeded Darlene Staffeldt, who had worked at the library for 35 years."

Future Proof – Protecting our digital future » Exposure draft of digitisation guidance now available

Future Proof – Protecting our digital future » Exposure draft of digitisation guidance now available | Information Professional PD | Scoop.it

"We are pleased to announce the release of a new Exposure draft:

Managing digitisation programs and projects 

http://www.records.nsw.gov.au/recordkeeping/government-recordkeeping-manual/guidance/guidelines/managing-digitisation-programs-and-projects/new-draft-guidance-on-digitisation"

 

 

 

"The digitisation guidance is divided into two guidelines:

1. business process digitisation programs, i.e. ongoing routine digitisation for daily business use, and

2. back-capture digitisation projects, i.e. retrospective or project-based digitisation of existing paper records.

Each guideline can be read as a whole, or you can go to individual sections to learn more about particular topics, e.g. metadata requirements, technical specifications etc. The Planning for digitisation section of each guideline provides a summary of the issues you need to consider.

In addition, the guidance includes Frequently asked questions, a Glossary, a Bibliography and Digitisation case studies."
