Digitization has undergone a rapid and profound transformation in the past two decades. Legacy systems built on scanning have been replaced with modern instant capture systems. Direct-to-TIFF workflows are being replaced by RAW workflow. Institutions are adopting FADGI and other guidelines that ensure digitization is done at a preservation-grade of quality, but require a more nuanced understanding of image quality than relying on manufacturer’s stated PPI. To fully reap the rewards of this transformation requires new hardware, software, and workflows, as well as a new approach to digitization’s position in an institutional context. In this class we’ll take the 10,000 foot view of these transformations to form a foundation of the modern approach to digitization.
