SAA Workshop on Archival prespectives on digititization

The SAA workshop was very good, though very theoretical. I did come home with a few tips I can put into action.

* Bookkeeper to deacidify paper
* Use MARC tag 530 for information on the digitized images in the
record of the actual item.
* Types of open source depository software and what they are best
for. (all much too big and complicated for lone arranger, me)

More to come. I haven’t had time to process what I’ve learned yet and
I’m off to SE Arizonia on vacation until May 15th. I’ll get back to you
with more.

The organzation of the workshop was done by Sue Hamburger (sic) and it
was great. She made reservations and arrangements ahead for out of town
people who might want to have dinner together, and provided outstanding
snacks, including ice cream from the Penn State Creamery.
