Hello everyone,


I'm passing on the following message on behalf of DLF-AIG's Cost Assessment working group.




Please participate in the Still Image Digitization Costs Assessment Survey.


Building on the development of the Digitization Cost Calculator, the Digital Library Federation (DLF) AIG Cost Group is shifting directions to create a more expansive toolkit that will serve a wider range of digitization programs.


Digitization costs can be calculated in terms of money and/or time, which themselves exist in tension with one another. For the purposes of this survey, digitization is defined as the practices and procedures associated with reformatting physical objects into a digital form and may include, but are not limited to: materials preparation, digital capture activities, quality assurance, post processing, and metadata creation.


The survey data gathers preliminary information about the practices of various organizations attempting or considering cost assessment of digitization. Unless otherwise specified, all data gathered will be anonymous.


The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes. You may take the survey here.  Deadline for completion is May 25, 2021.


Feel free to forward to interested colleagues both in and out of your organization. Thank you for your support!


The DLF AIG Cost Assessment Group


P.S. Anyone interested in digitization practices or costs associated with digitization practice are welcome to join the DLF-AIG Cost Group. More information about meetings may be found here.
