    Tour with Digital Commonwealth!

    Have you ever wondered how Digital Commonwealth works or how to get started on a digital preservation project with us? Join us for a FREE behind-the-scenes tour of Digital Commonwealth and the Digital Imaging Lab at Boston Public Library, where the magic happens. Guiding our tour is the Statewide Digitization Project Archivist, Jake Sadow, who will discuss the start-to-finish process of how digitizing collections for Digital Commonwealth is done.

    There will be two tour sessions at the Boston Public Library's Central Branch on Copley Square on Tuesday, October 10, 2023. Each session is limited to 20 people.

    Session A runs from 10 to 11 AM, and Session B is from 11 AM to 12 PM.

    Meet the team in Mezzanine Room 2 in the Central Branch of the Boston Public Library to start the tour. Please feel free to stop by between 10 AM to 12 PM to say hello, talk shop, and meet some new faces - we will have snacks!

    Please register for one session. If you are unable to attend, please unregister for the event so those on the waitlist can register.

    Jake Sadow is the Statewide Digitization Project Archivist for the Boston Public Library. He manages the Statewide Digitization program, liaising between Massachusetts-based cultural heritage institutions and digitization staff at the Boston Public Library. He has worked with over 400 institutions to get their cultural heritage collections online, including libraries, museums, historical societies, and universities. He also acts as an educator, raising awareness among library and information professionals of issues in digitization and promoting conversations between institutions to address those issues.
