Gippsland Workshop 3: SCANNING FOR BEGINNERS

March 21 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

$30 – $45

This workshop is the third in a series of six workshops on digitisation and cataloguing to be held at Federation University’s Gippsland Campus in Churchill. If you wish to purchase a discounted ticket to all six workshops click here.

This workshop is aimed at those who are new to scanning. It will cover some terminology relating to digital images, and how to prepare documents for scanning before participants scan some documents using flatbed scanners. Participants will compare the document to the digital image and learn basic image manipulation to have the best possible digitised version. Then, file naming and storage standards will be applied to the digitised documents. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to scan documents confidently.

The series of 6 linked workshops (three Saturday morning & afternoons over three months) cover aspects of cataloguing and digitisation. This series of workshops is progressive, starting with basic concepts and building in complexity.

Participants need to bring their own lap-top.

All workshops are limited to 20 participants and will be led by Sophie Shilling, our digital expert. They are all to be held at the library at Federation University’s Gippsland Campus in Churchill.

Tea and coffee are available throughout the workshop however participants staying for both workshops will need to bring their lunch.
