A Collaborative Workflow for the Digitization of Unique Materials
Gueguen, Gretchen; Hanlon, Ann M.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v35 n5 p468-474 Sep 2009
This paper examines the experience of one institution, the University of Maryland Libraries, as it made organizational efforts to harness existing workflows and to capture digitization done in the course of responding to patron requests. By examining the way this organization adjusted its existing workflows to put in place more systematic methods for digital capture of unique collections, the authors hope to provide insight into the benefits and pitfalls of one model for scaling up digitization.
