Toolkit for the Digitization of First Nations Knowledge
A. Digitization Overview
Digitization can be performed by scanning records in paper form, or by capturing analogue material with a digital camera and by digitizing media, such as audio or video, using an analogue to digital converter.
By implementing and following sound practice procedures, we are able to:
Ensure that the digital files we create are of high quality and meet national standards;
Maintain the integrity and longevity of the digital files;
Ensure the digital objects in the collection are discoverable and shareable;
Save time and costs by avoiding duplication of work.
