The Open Book is an invitation to the behind the scenes work in the University of Victoria Libraries related to digitization.
Come see how we create digital versions of our physical holdings, have a look at what is on the scan-bed this week, and what new resources are available. Learn about the ups and downs of everything from scanning to image editing to the creation of metadata (the descriptive information that helps users find the right material), and more.
Your host is Page DeWolfe, longtime staff member of the McPherson Library and member of the digitization team since 2006. Other digitization team members contribute articles for their respective projects.
