This webcast will arm archivists with an introduction to the components of digital photographs and embedded metadata, and a basic overview of issues related to collection development, appraisal, arrangement, and description. Webcast attendees will have the chance to ask questions of the instructors during a live Q&A session.
The optional in-person course (Part 2) will build on the webcast content with in-depth instruction, discussion, and exercises related specifically to the creation and use of various types of born-digital image files. This webcast is a prerequisite for the in-person course.
