UnBOXed: Small Digitization Projects 1 (March 28) recording now available!

Did you miss the Solo Archivists Section's first "UnBOXED: Small Digitization Projects" event on March 28?  If so, the recording is now available here.

Also, remember to register (if you haven't already) for Part 2!

In the Part 1 recording, you will hear from the following panelists:

  • Katherine Banks, Milligan University (Tennessee)
For almost ten years, the archivist and archives student workers at Milligan University's archives have been digitizing institutional photos for their digital repository. This presentation will give an overview of that project, which has become a rich resource for reference and outreach for the archives.
  • Sidney Louie, Palama Settlement (Hawaiʻi)
In 2022, Palama Settlement embarked on a digitization project to scan, catalog, and describe over 40,000 documents and photographs circa 1896-1980. Digitization priority of documents was determined by institutional need to support Palama Settlement's administration. Additionally, the entire photographic collection has been prioritized due to the at-risk conditions of the physical materials. The presentation will show what is currently available online and cover the next steps of the project.
  • Karina Wilhelm, Center for Archaeology and Society Repository, Arizona State University (Arizona)
Utilizing student workers, the Center for Archaeology and Society Repository digitizes archival materials to support archaeology work around Arizona. This presentation will address the logistics of the project and the challenges of providing information while also protecting archaeological sites.
