This workshop is specifically designed to support organisations who have already begun, or who wish to begin, scanning documents and records.
The workshop will guide participants to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to develop a digitisation program which will enable them to consistently and systematically produce accurate, reliable complete reproductions of source documents.
The workshop will focus on supporting participants in implementing international best practice principles when developing a digitisation program. One of the standards featured is the ISO 13028:2012 – Information and documentation – Implementation guidelines for digitization of records (equivalent to ISO/TR 13028:2010 – effectively the same standard). Participants will also become familiar with the relevant regulatory requirements applicable to scanning of source records within their jurisdiction. For example, in WA these requirements are outlined in the SRC GDA for Source Records and Standard 8 – Managing Digital Information, which can be found on the State Records Office of WA website.
This training course will provide guidance on establishing a digitisation program in your organisation to facilitate digitising of source documents and records and information received in hard copy.
