Register for this issues forum.
Geared for librarians, administrators, IT staff, and students who are interested in digital initiatives in academic, public, and special libraries, this forum will explore how and where digitization initiatives can best fit within a library’s infrastructure. The discussion will include issues libraries may wish to consider before launching digitization initiatives, approaches for structuring digital workflows within the library, and the pros and cons of in-house, one-stop, digitization shops within libraries vs. more integrated approaches across various library departments.
The forum will feature three administrators from the New York Public Library, which has recently undergone a restructuring that involves, among other things, integrating work with digital collections into existing departments and creating a new Digital Experience team.
