Digital Projects Toolkit Part 3: Scanning is the third in a series of five short courses introducing the basics of cultural heritage digitization projects. This section includes tips for working with digitization vendors and selecting equipment as well as standards and best practices for scanning historical materials in-house.
This series was created by Recollection Wisconsin to help public library systems provide basic digitization education and support to their members. Course development was funded by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC). Support for Recollection Wisconsin is provided in part by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant administered by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
