Does your genealogy or history organization want to learn more about digitizing records?
The Indiana Genealogical Society is holding a Society Management Seminar on Friday, April 7, 2017 in Indianapolis that will focus on aspects of digitizing records. The seminar will be held at the Indiana Historical Society and will feature these sessions:
- Connie Rendfeld, Digital Initiatives Librarian for the Indiana State Library, will talk about how to plan your digitization project before you start scanning.
- Ramona Duncan-Huse and Susan Sutton from the Indiana Historical Society will talk about how to preserve records and how to choose what you should put online.
- Ron Darrah from the Genealogical Society of Marion County will lead a panel discussion on local digitization projects.
- Tours will be given of the Indiana Historical Society's Conservation Lab and their William H. Smith Memorial Library.
Registration for the seminar is just $5 per person, and there is free parking available in the Indiana Historical Society's parking lot. The Society's Stardust Café (on the canal-level) will be open for lunch.
