Feedback form is now closed.
During the Fall 2021 semester, the BYU Library’s Digital Imaging Lab was tasked with digitizing a mural within their building for preservation and access following FADGI guidelines prior to the mural being affected by impending renovations. This project led to research to develop a workflow for digitizing oversized cultural heritage items. This session presents the workflow development, workstation configuration, digitization process, post-process and delivery exploration, and problems encountered and resolved. Successful development of this process demonstrates the potential of this process and others like it have to further the capabilities of cultural heritage digitization solutions at institutions with limited resources.

Learning objectives:
Digitization workflow of oversized cultural heritage items.
The implications of implementing such a project/workflow.
