    4th International HATII Digitisation Summer School

    HATII is pleased to announce the 4th International HATII
    Digitisation Summer School, July 8 - 13 2001, at the University of Glasgow.

    Full information and course details can be found on the HATII web pages at:

    The availability of high-quality digital content is central to improved
    public access, teaching, and research about heritage information.
    Archivists, librarians, and museum professionals are among the many groups
    involved in creating digital resources to improve access and understanding
    to their collections. Skills in understanding the principles and best
    practice in the digitisation of primary textual and image resources have
    broad value. The Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute
    (HATII) has developed this course to address the advantages of developing
    digital collections of heritage materials, as well as investigate issues
    involved in selecting, creating, curating, and managing access to such
    collections. The lectures will be supplemented by workshops and practical
    exercises. Participants will acquire practical skills in digitisation of
    analogue material (print, image e.g. photographic or slide, music
    manuscripts, or map). The focus will be on working with primary source
    material not otherwise available in digital form.

    The one-week intensive course will consist of lectures; workshops; hands-on
    practicals (offering both guided tuition, as well as an opportunity for
    individual practice); and visits to Special Collections at the Glasgow
    University Library, the Archives and the Performing Arts Data Service (PADS).

    Places are limited on the course, so please register early to confirm a
