P04 PROFESSIONAL POSTER - Digital Curation of Analog Material from Northwestern University Archives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Northwestern University Archives began scanning the Justine Cordwell slide and negative collection to be ingested into the digital repository. Cordwell, at 89 years of age, agreed to collaborate with the Manuscript Librarian to generate handwritten metadata for the Digital Collections Department. Cordwell died in the middle of the project, but the collection was completely cataloged . This poster presentation provides an overview of the collaborative efforts between two departments to manage the workflow and curation of both the analog and digital content.
