The Illinois Digitization Institute provides training in the theory and practice of digitization to libraries, archives and museums throughout the state of Illinois. The Institute offers a series of hands-on workshops covering the basics of digitization, and is in the process of developing a series of more in-depth on-line digitization training modules.
Metadata for You & Me workshops address the needs of library, museum and cultural heritage professionals in the creation, development and use of interoperable or shareable descriptive metadata. The content of workshops is based on the Best Practices for Shareable Metadata, an initiative of the Digital Library Federation and the National Science Digital Library, that provides guidance for creating metadata that can be easily understood, processed and used outside of its local environment.
