School for Scanning: Los Angeles
Creating, Managing, and Preserving Digital Assets
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center
April 23-25, 2003
The Getty Center, Los Angeles, California

The conference is funded in part by the National Endowment for the
Humanities. It is cosponsored by Amigos Library Services, Inc., Imaging &
Preservation Services; the Balboa Art Conservation Center; and the J. Paul
Getty Trust.

What is the School for Scanning? This conference provides current, essential
information for collections managers who are seeking to create, manage, and
preserve digital assets. Participants will leave the conference better
equipped to make informed choices regarding management of their digital
projects. Although significant technical content will be presented, this is
not a technician-training program. Conference content will include:

Project Management
Copyright and Other Legal Issues
Content Selection for Digitization
Quality Control and Costs
Collaborative Project Models
Text and Image Digitization
Descriptive, Structural, and Administrative Metadata
Digital Longevity and Preservation

Who Should Attend? Administrators within cultural institutions, as well as
librarians, archivists, curators, and other cultural or natural resource
managers dealing with paper-based collections, including photographs, will
find the School for Scanning conference highly relevant and worthwhile.
Since the complexion of this conference evolves with the technology, it
would be beneficial to attend even if you have participated in a previous
School for Scanning. An audience of 300 or more attendees is expected.

What does the Conference Cost? The cost of the conference is $365 for early
bird registration postmarked on or before March 21, 2003, and $450 for late
registration, deadline April 4, 2003. Participants will be responsible for
all of their travel, meals, and lodging costs. For information about special
