Digital Conversion in the Modern Research Ecosystem
Conversion to or within the digital domain is integral to the preservation, access, and stewardship of digital collections, but how does one measure its value in the modern research ecosystem beyond its ability to provide a means for access? Decisions made in any conversion phase have great influence on outcomes of preservation, access, and digital scholarship. As such, conversion in the context of digital preservation models and theories about knowledge production plays an important role in digital curation and the wisdom produced from humanities research. This talk will explore thinking about librarianship and digital humanities through an illustration of how digital conversion and scholarship share a tendency to influence each other’s goals, aims, abilities, and outcomes toward sustainable and innovative stewardship of digital collections.

Building the Discography of American Historical Recordings into a 78rpm Mass Digitization Project
The UC Santa Barbara Library, with support from the Packard Humanities Institute, is building out its audio digitization program to enable the library to digitize historical 78rpm sound recordings at scale. The project integrates the Discography of American Historical Recordings database with a new mass digitization workflow, to increase efficiency, dramatically lower costs, and reduce errors. The library is currently digitizing 200 titles per week and ramping up to digitize 500+ titles per week. This talk explores our unique philosophy of digital library creation, issues we’ve faced in building the project out to scale, and issues with providing online access.
