Workshop for Lithuanian museums involved in EuropeanaPhotography project

The workshop on scanning old photographs was organized by the Lithuanian Museums’ Centre for Information, Digitization and LIMIS and took place at its mother institution, the Lithuanian Art Museum, on the 14th March 2012. The head of the centre Danutė Mukienė and the coordinator of EuropeanaPhotography in Lithuania Giedrė Asin Marco presented the main goals and objectives of the project, its administrative and financial issues. Among other issues discussed during the meeting were museums’ participation in the project and certain preparatory tasks concerned with the selection of the old photographs as objects for digitization as well as the actual process of digitizing them. The second part of the workshop was dedicated to the practical training on scanning photographic images, positives and negatives. Specialists from 16 museums have learnt to scan objects and edit digital images.
