DIGITAL PROJECTS

  • The Northeast Document Conservation Center’s 132-page Handbook for Digital Projects may be accessed at http://www.nedcc.org/welcome/pubs.htm and includes chapters on the “Rationale for Digitization and Preservation,” Project Management, Selection, Copyright, a Technical Primer, Case Studies, and Digital Longevity. Most chapters are written so that the non-technical type can reach an understanding of some of the key components important to any digitization project.
