<span><span>Here is a concise guide to the nuts and bolts of converting flat media (books, papers, maps, posters, slides, micro formats, etc) into digital files. It provides librarians and archivists with the practical knowledge to understand the process and decision making in the digitization of flat media. Instead of having to learn by trial and error, they will get a well-rounded education of the practical aspects of digitization and have a better understanding of their options. This is the stuff they don’t teach you in school. </span></span>

<ul>

<li><span>the differences between a “scanner” that uses a scanning head vs a “scanner” that uses a camera, </span></li>
<li><span>the different options for workflow for digitized items, and </span></li>
<li><span>the reasons for choosing one scanner over another for reasons other than price. </span></li>
</ul>
