Abstract

All library initiatives benefit from planning and structure, whether you’re organizing an outsourced, grant-funded digitization project or an internal digital collections initiative that includes digitization, descriptive metadata creation, and an online exhibit. In this two-hour workshop, participants will come away with concrete skills and new approaches to ensure that digital projects of any size are completed on deadline and without issues. The workshop will also survey specific tools that assist with project management and digital projects. Project managers of all skill-levels are welcome at this workshop, although the content will be geared towards beginners and those with some familiarity in managing a digital project. The workshop will include exercises to help participants determine the scope of a digital project, write a project plan or charter, and develop a close-out plan for when your project reaches its end. Every participant in this workshop will likely come with both something to learn and something to contribute and to that end, we will share and collaborate in small groups to maximize our time together.
