Hi everyone,

the Federation of Nova Scotia Heritage has asked if I wouldn't mind
posting this workshop to my librarian contacts. Even though it is
targeted for museums, it can be applicable for any artifact.



Hello Everyone!
We have an upcoming workshop  on April 21st.  The Description is below,
and just a reminder that the deadline for registration is April 10th! If
you have any questions just give me a call or send an email. I'll be
following up with a phone call next week and will be able to take
registration. Enjoy the spring weather!

The Federation of NS Heritage in partnership with Canadian Heritage
Information Network is pleased to offer:

Digitizing Images for Your Museum

Presenter:  Diane Bowden, Systems analyst, Content Management and
Capacity Building, Canadian Heritage Information Management

Date:  April 21, 2006

Registration Deadline:  Monday April 10, 2006

For those embarking on a digitization project, and especially for those
on the Passage Project, this workshop will give you answers for those
questions you ask, “Why digitize? What does it involve? What are the
costs?  What lessons have others learned? Where do I begin to digitize
my collection?”

Dianne Bowden, CHIN, will present a full-day workshop to answer
your questions and more on digitization.  You will also learn to:

v     Determine your digitizing options

v     Consider different uses for images

v     Assess the implications for future cataloguing.

  Each participating site will receive a digitization kit of
background fabric in two colours and a measuring scale. (Value:
 $40.00)>   Space is limited to 20 participants so register early!  Only
one registrant per site will be initially accepted If there is space at
the time of the registration deadline, we will then allow more than one
person from each site.

 Thanks everyone!
