Digitising Your Collection - Part 2 The Golden Rule of Digitisation

 

Overview

This resource is part of a series about developing your own digitisation program. In the series they talking about: project planning; technical specifications; handling the archives; scanning tips; file storage, and; metadata and access. 

Much of this advice is based on experiences at State Records and they use examples of State Records practices along the way. 

This resource takes you through the golden rule of any digitisation project 'capture once, use many times'. This means you should avoid the trap of creating a digitial image to meet an immediate need and think about future requirements.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
