102 - The Future of Appraisal and Processing of Digital Materials: Software, Strategies and Scalability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Although many of our peers face issues of appraising and processing digital materials at scale, we have yet to come together as a community to discuss the future of appraisal and processing and to share our struggles and successes. Each speaker has either developed or utilized software to assist (or replace) archival tasks that are becoming less feasible as digital collections increase in scale.

England: When Appraisal Isn't Enough: Selecting Born-Digital Photographs at Scale
Belovari: Expedited Digital Processing for "Regular" Archivists: A German Experiment
Lee: Using Natural Language Processing Tools for Appraisal and Processing
Venlet: Visualizing for Strategy: Reviewing Born-Digital Archives
Walsh: Software-Driven Workflows for Efficient Processing of Large-Scale Digital Archives

Moderator: Lora J. Davis
