Many of France's ancient and valuable collections are excellent candidates for digitization. Yet the different library settings in which these collections are housed makes it difficult to lead a comprehensive approach to digital initiatives. In this forum Bernadette Vincent will discuss the challenges involved in creating a holistic strategy for digitizing collections in France, the major achievements to date, and ideas for tackling future projects.
Bernadette Vincent is a librarian from the Bibliothèque universitaire des langues et civilisations (BULAC) in Paris. She is visiting the Yale Library on a Fulbright grant in order to investigate best practices related to the digitization of non-Roman manuscripts. All are welcome to attend the talk.
Yale University Library's Standing Committee on Professional Awareness, SCOPA, strives to encourage professional growth and the development of librarianship as a dynamic profession. SCOPA organizes a regular series of forums devoted to a wide range of topics concerning initiatives in Yale libraries and academic libraries in general. SCOPA welcomes suggestions concerning possible future forums.
