"The 5 W's of Planning an Imaging Project - Part 1 (What, When, and Why)" - March 20, 2014 - 10:00-11:00 AM. What does digital imaging involve? When (and why) is digital imaging beneficial, and when is it a waste of money and time? In the first webinar of this series, we will introduce the benefits of a digital imaging project – quick access, file sharing – and also discuss cost considerations. We will also discuss the issue of source document destruction – should you destroy the original document after scanning, and if you do, how can you ensure that the scanned image meets Bulletin 1/Bulletin B requirements for authenticity?

"The 5 W's of Planning an Imaging Project - Part 2 (Who and How)" - March 27, 2014 - 10:00-11:00 AM. After examining the what, when, and why of an imaging project, you’ve decided that digital imaging is right for your records, and you want to make sure that your project will be successful. In the second webinar of the series, we will explore the “who” of imaging – do it yourself or hire a vendor? We will discuss components of an in-house project (the “how” of the project), such as selecting software and equipment, handling fragile or oversize material, staffing and training, metadata, file formats, ensuring quality control, and more. Then, we’ll delve into special considerations for using a vendor before concluding with some imaging project case studies. (Register)
