Training: “From Paper to Files – How to Efficiently Digitize (Historical) Documents”



The Faculty of Arts and KU Leuven Libraries jointly organize a 2-day training (22/11 and 23/11) focusing on “self-made” document digitization for researchers and staff members. Different modules (that can be followed independently from each other) will teach you: (1) how to photograph archival materials to ensure the best possible quality; (2) how to create an ideal research data management (RDM) workflow for the digitized materials; (3) and how to apply Optical Character Recognition and Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) to automatically transcribe text from images.
