2F: From Mold Remediation to Collection Digitization

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In the summer of 2021, a significant section of the oldest journals in the Tom Slick Library of Southwest Research Institute fell subject to extensive mold. Using interlibrary loan data, OCLC availability, and the PAPR registry, the library staff were able to validate the cost to clean and maintain the entire affected collection. The effort highlighted not only the value but the susceptibility of the collection in full and leads to the prospect of large-scale digitization. But as a staff of 5 with two librarians, how do we approach this?

This reverse workshop is an interactive and real-time brainstorming/ideation session calling on all who've tackled or considered digitization projects and have insights, experiences, and best practices to share! With our helpful community, the aim is for attendees to walk away with:

  • necessary questions to ask when approaching a digitization project
  • awareness of shared concerns or known challenges
  • new or refreshed information on processes, grants, and potential partnerships to help guide digitization efforts across our organizations

Topics of discussion include copyright, technical infrastructure, equipment, collaborations, and preparation of materials. All ideation ideas will be captured and available both in real-time and after the session via Jamboard:
