Peel Art Gallery: Why Don’t Archivists Digitize Everything?
Peel Art Gallery: Why Don’t Archivists Digitize Everything?. “In this post we’ll share some of the behind-the-scenes realities of digitizing and uploading rare materials. We hope this boosts awareness about some important facets of document digitization and sharing. One is the vast army of largely anonymous labourers out there whose work makes these valuable resources available. Another is the existence of the original records behind the images, which archivists continue to steward. We also hope that people who are informed about digitization will advocate for archives in the opportunities and challenges they face.”
