Afterimages: Reformatting Visual Materials in a Digital World
Presented by the Northeast Document Conservation Center

At the National Archives and Records Administration

What is Afterimages?
Afterimages is a course designed to teach managers of picture collections
how to plan and manage projects to reformat endangered visual materials,
including deteriorating cellulose acetate and cellulose nitrate negatives
for both black and white and color images. Archives, historical societies,
libraries, and museums often hold large collections of photographs and
other visual materials, many of which are fragile or relatively
inaccessible. Reformatting these images either digitally or
photographically can limit future damage to original images, while
increasing access to them either over the Web or in other publication

The program includes hands-on experience and will teach skills for:

1. planning and managing reformatting projects for visual materials,
including contracting an outside vendor;

2. selecting and preparing collections for reformatting, including
preservation issues and care and handling;

3. selecting and evaluating copy technologies: including when to make
digital copies and when to make photographic copies;

4. understanding best practices, benchmarks, and quality control for color
and black and white photographs and digital imaging;

5. ensuring sound cost benefit analysis and containment; and

6. managing contracts, and legal issues.

The sessions will introduce photographic duplication options and digital
imaging technologies and compare their commonalties and differences.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND? If you are an archivist, curator, historic preservation
specialist, librarian, or other cultural resources manager dealing with
collections including photographic materials, you will be interested in
attending Afterimages.

WHO ARE THE FACULTY? Karen Brown, Northeast Document Conservation Center;
Joan Gatewood, New York Public Library; David Joyall, Northeast Document
Conservation Center; Melissa Smith Levine, Library of Congress; Richard
