This workshop was presented by Thomas F.R. Clareson who is the Senior Consultant for Digital and Preservation Services at LYRASIS and Linda Langschied who is the Digital Projects Librarian at the Scholarly Communication Center, Rutgers University Libraries. It was provided by the New Jersey State Library and the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts (with generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services).
So, I drove to WheatonArts in Millville, New Jersey, early in the morning for another amazing conference venue! WheatonArts is a fun place to visit, especially if you like glass (see below).
To give you an idea of what this conference was about, here is the outline:
Tools you can use for scanning and quality control.
Hardware, software, and metadata.
Making practical planning decisions: in-house or outsourcing.
Practical planning decisions for staffing and budgeting.
This was an excellent, fast-paced conference. I learned much and was given a "book" of useful information to consult.
WheatonArts is a national cultural treasure. Located on 65 wooded acres in southern New Jersey, WheatonArts is home to the Museum of American Glass, the Creative Glass Center of America International Fellowship Program, the largest folklife center in the Garden State, a hot glass studio, several traditional craft studios, five museum stores, a 13,000 sq. ft. Event Center and a beautiful pond-side picnic grove - a true Pineland Sanctuary!
