Event Details:

Identifying and caring for digitally printed materials can be a challenging task. On March 28, 2019 from 1:00-4:00 pm Senior Research Scientist Daniel Burge from the Image Permanence Institute will conduct an afternoon workshop offering a broad summary of the issues involved with digital print collection care. Topics to be covered will include definition of the term digital print, the history and technologies of the most common digital printers, the variety of possible formats, likely forms of deterioration, general recommendations for care, as well as suggested naming conventions and descriptive terminology for cataloging and other records. Ample time for in-class discussions will be given to ensure that all questions can be raised and addressed.
