This members-only presentation is intended for anyone ready to tackle their digital files with limited resources, be it pre- or post digitization.

Wondering about a video collection? Facing the in-house or with a vendor question? Learn some basics of getting started, planning and best practices. Kristin MacDonough and Dan Erdman will walk you through workflows, troubleshooting and format risks.

How do you care for those files once they have become digitized? Curious about tools and workflows to keep your data healthy and accessible?  Kelsey O'Connell brings her knowledge to the community and answer your questions.

You have audio but no transcript or maybe you have a transcript but want more, what are the right choices for you?  Allison Schein Holmes will demonstrate both paid and free speech to text automation services and a dive into the Hyperaud.io pad.

There will be 3 presentations concurrently, each lasting 45 - 60 mins, 10 people per and rotating on the hour.

When: June 23rd

Time: 11:00 - 2:00
