August 2017 -- The SERI Tools and Resources Subcommittee of the Council of State Archivists presents a three-part module on the best practices for managing digitization projects. The decision to digitize records and the choice of a method to do so are not as simple as putting an item on a scanner and pressing "go"; to be highly successful, this process requires thoughtful research, preparation, and studious project management.
This document is organized into three broad categories. Each category includes the strategies and best practices of highly successful digitization projects. Though the parameters for each project will differ greatly — budget and resources, source and amount of funding, type of material to be digitized, descriptive requirements, preservation activities — these best practices will produce a project management framework that is flexible enough to be applied to projects of all sizes and scopes.
