E302 - Culture in Transit: Digitizing & Democratizing NYC’s Cultural Heritage

11:15 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Anne Karle-Zenith, Digital Services Manager, Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) & Knight Foundation Grant Recipient

Hear from a Knight Foundation grant recipient about Culture In Transit, a project to help small cultural heritage organizations and community members provide access to their materials by creating a mobile kit that digitizes print materials for archiving and online access. This outreach-centered digitization model aims to democratize and diversify NYC’s historical record. The project is led by the Metropolitan New York Library Council, in partnership with Brooklyn Public Library and Queens Library. This talk covers the community scanning and public archiving process; scanning at small cultural heritage collections; and a toolkit that will be available for others who might like to replicate these efforts.
