SPRING ROUND TABLE 2021
A Global Gathering for Cultural Heritage Professionals
Our Cultural Heritage Round Tables began as small, one-off gatherings between Digital Transitions and our clients, as a formal way for us to gather the community’s collective feedback on their experience with our equipment and how we could work to improve it.
Since its inception, the event has grown from a single day at our office to two annual conferences in key regions across the United States (now being held virtually). Attendees come from a variety of countries, disciplines, and institutions to demo new digitization technology, learn best practices, discuss workflow tips, and network with other cultural heritage professionals. We invite you to join us for a two-day-long event celebrating the latest advancements in digital imaging technology.
The online event will be held online on May 6th and 7th. There will be morning and afternoon sessions, each followed by break-out sessions based on a topic. Like our in-person events, there will be several full-length presentations and plenty of opportunities to network with your peers.
Learn from industry-leading institutions and network with Cultural Heritage professionals.

DT Digitization Certification Program
One of our core missions at DT Cultural Heritage is to be a knowledge resource for the Cultural Heritage digitization community; helping to foster the spread of information and best practices in an industry that too often relies on individuals figuring out techniques and workflows on their own. As part of that ongoing initiative, earlier this year we launched our DT Digitization Certification Training Program to help educate the Cultural Heritage community on the equipment, software, workflows, and best practices associated with modern digitization.
