Where do I start?

Create an inventory

Before you get started, spend some time with your collection and identify what formats do you have, how many items of each format, and if there are any special handling requirements.

Find your best copies

Good digitization will reveal every bit of wear and this can compromise some results, so if you can, have negatives or slides instead of positive prints, for example, or see if you can find unused copies instead of public-use copies.

Determine your archival needs

You’ll want to store the digital files for future use and preservation. Consider your organizational policies about preservation or write one! You might need TIFs or JPG or PDF master digital files. If you have text objects, do you need full text searchability? And finally, how do you need the items displayed?
