We do a lot of digitization of print materials in-house, but there are occasions when we engage the services of a vendor. Packaging the materials to be transported to the vendor is an important task, and one that involves people working together across departments.
A recent example is the Moloney sheet music collection from Tamiment-Wagner. Preparation for digitization involved extensive organizational work by individuals from Tamiment-Wagner, DLTS, and Preservation. The resulting package was well formed and ready to go.
