SOASIS....on the move presents:

The Southern Ohio Chapter of the Association for Information Science Presents:

Digitization of Library Materials

4:00 p.m., Thursday, January 21, 1999
Blegen Library
University of Cincinnati

Join SOASIS to learn about the process of digitization of primary documentation, incorporating high-resolution images, databases, text, and supporting materials with an interface for optimum searching, examination, and analysis of the contents of electronic publications.

Alice Cornell, Head of Archives and Rare Books Department at the University of Cincinnati (UC), will describe how some libraries approach digitization, and UC's experience toward the development of its Digital Press. She will demonstrate, through UC's Transmississippi West project, how the digitization of a vast array of documentation from widely separated collections can promote and enhance scholarship. Ms. Cornell will also show the Digital Press production area and some of the current projects under development. The SOASIS program will be held in the Archives and Rare Books Department, which is located on the 8th floor of the Blegen Library, and can be reached from the fourth floor lobby via the elevator on the east side of the building.
