    Creating access to collections through digitization shapes scholarship and teaching. Panelists open the black box of digitization workflows by discussing how collections are selected for digitization; the process of creating OCR (optical character recognition) transcripts, databases, and metadata for searchability; and the development of user interfaces and open-access policies.

    We will accommodate the following audiovisual request(s) for your session: Projection equipment for a computer

    keywords: Libraries, Archives, Collections, Digital Humanities, Acces
