The purpose of this pilot project is to 1) investigate the applicability of the distributed scanning model developed for the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) for use among the depository libraries of Florida and 2) determine the effectiveness of providing training in digitization using Adobe Connect. Rather than traveling to the 41 libraries around the state, the team developed an online training program on digitizing documents and using Sobek to upload them to the University of Florida Digital Collection (UFDC). This program will be delivered live to three test libraries, and recorded for reference purposes and future use if evaluations are positive.
Participating libraries will be asked to use the training to scan a set number of pieces from their government documents collection, and use the self-submittal tool to deliver them to UFDC. Scanners, webcams, and headphone sets will be provided to the test libraries to allow for uniform training conditions and optimum communication.
