Are you sitting on a stockpile of old family photos and mementos that you’d love to digitize but you just aren’t sure how to start such a massive project? Do you have a bounty of digitized images but aren’t quite sure where/how to organize them or how to add details that will be saved as metadata? This session will provide tips that can help you tackle your digitization project with greater efficiency and will also provide guidance on organizing your files and adding details as metadata.
