DIGITAL DIRECTIONS: Fundamentals of Creating and Managing Digital Collections
October 15-16, 2018
Commerce Club - Atlanta, Georgia

Guided by a faculty of national experts, join colleagues from institutions large and small for two days of instruction on best practices and practical strategies for the creation, curation, and use of digital collections. Network with colleagues who have similar challenges, interact with faculty one-on-one, and gain a comprehensive introduction to digitization and digital preservation.

Are you just getting started with a digital project? Trying to bring several digital projects together into a cohesive digital preservation program? Or are you well into a digital collections project and need a refresher on the latest standards and best practices?

The Digital Directions conference is geared toward professionals working with digital collections at archives, libraries, museums, historical organizations, government agencies, business and special libraries and archives, and other organizations that steward digital collections. Discounted student rate is available.
