01.12.2020 Online Workshop "Cultural Heritage in Cyberspace: Preservation, Education, and Access"

Phase III- Event 1: Online Workshop Theme: Digitization Phases, Techniques and Software. Wednesday, December 2, 2020. 09.00-17.30

"In the pursuit for the continuation and the entry to a third phase of the project ‘Cultural Heritage in Cyberspace’, the National Library and Archives of Egypt (NLAE), has suggested to hold a joint workshop this winter. Realizing that technology and digitization have become major pillars of Bibliothecography and information systems, holding a workshop that involves an exchange of expertise and information on the management of digitization projects can be an important step towards the planning of further collaboration ventures. The event will focus on phases of digitization including comprehensive planning, tools, techniques, preservation and accessibility, according to international standards. The workshop is of an extensive practical nature, through which the digitization technicalities are to be discussed including digital scanning, photo processing, cataloging and indexing. Furthermore, NLAE’s team have expressed their wish to explore German partners’ ongoing projects of digitization, collecting of manuscript notes (ownership, endowment, reading, etc.), historical genealogy and multilayered metadata."
