Thank you for your interest in To Scan or Not To Scan.  The newly added session is now at capacity.

Registration is now open for the Ohio Electronic Record Committee’s 2018 Spring Workshop, To Scan or Not to Scan: That is the Question! This workshop is free to attend, plus a travel stipend for mileage is being sponsored by OHRAB and the NHPRC. (This is the SAME workshop that was offered  in October 2017)

The workshop will be held on March 2, 2018 from 1:00-3:30.  Seating is limited to 50 per session.

This workshop will investigate the pros and cons of scanning various types of records, as well as demonstrate a new feasibility tool developed by the OhioERC for evaluating records for digitization. Following the presentation, we’ll have 4 session rotations to take a fun, hands-on, small group, deeper dive into uncovering the hidden costs and variables before, during, and after digitizing, as well as utilizing the feasibility tool and touring the Delaware County Records Center and Archives reformatting operations.

This training has been certified for:
• 2 hours toward NAGARA’s Local Government Archives and Records Administrator’s certificate in the core competency of Reformatting
• 2 credit hours toward the Ohio Recorders Association continuing education
• 2.5 certification maintenance credits for CRMs and CRAs through the Institute of Certified Records Managers

Please see this Flyer for more details, the agenda, and location. Questions can be directed to OhioERC@ohiohistory.org.

Don’t keep this to yourself! Please pass this on to anyone that you feel would benefit from this workshop.
