Selecting Content for a Digitization Project

The Digital Public Library of America, through their Public Library Partnerships Project (PLPP),  has put together a curriculum "to provide digital skills training for public librarians and connect them sustainably with state and regional resources for digitizing, describing, and exhibiting their cultural heritage content.

This is the second module in the series and is entitled "Selecting Content for a Digitization Project".  It was created by Carla Urban from the Minnesota Digital Library.

Here she covers:
  • project scope
  • uniqueness
  • physical format and quality
  • subject matter
  • previously processed or cataloged materials
