Library Digitisation Project Management.
Middleton, Michael
Supervision of library digitization is the focus of this paper. First outlined are the definition, formalization, implementation, and completion phases of project management. Descriptions of management decisions involved in digitization projects follow on matters such as: collection analysis, resourcing, project personnel, production, access and metainformation, and intellectual property. These procedures to be formalized and implemented in digitization projects are then highlighted: selection for digital conversion, plan approach, produce digital collection and access aid, store in digital archive, create framework, assemble digital collection, test and refine, and release. Projects in Australian public, academic, and special libraries are then noted. The paper provides the following pointers for libraries embarking upon digitisation programs: policy framework, training, standards, application, and monitoring. (Contains 16 references.) (AEF)
