How to Digitally Archive and Share Historical Photographs, Documents, and Audio Recordings.
The website provides practical technical information, including specific workflow and steps for creating digital master files and preparing the files for presentation. Scanning best practices used by museums, libraries and archives are described, including less expensive alternative practices that are acceptable for many archive projects. A unique feature of the website is that it addresses costs and benefits, and describes how to use inexpensive consumer technology effectively as well as more expensive professional technology. The website is intended to be useful to historical organizations and to families, and particularly for anyone working with budget limitations. Other topics include developing historical slide shows and a very practical chapter on legal rights.
