Williston Community Library ScanDay
Thursday November 8, 2018
1:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Help build, share and preserve North Dakota history by participating in the Williston Community Library’s ScanDay event !
ScanDay is an event hosted in libraries, schools and institutions across the state, in which Digital Initiatives staff from the North Dakota State Library bring scanning and photography equipment and digitize historical photographs, documents, and objects. These items will later be displayed online as part of the North Dakota Memories collection on Digital Horizons, an online consortium consisting of thousands of images, documents, videos and oral histories depicting life on the Northern Plains.
Interested participants will reserve a 30-minute time slot with the Williston Community Library. Each participant may bring 10-15 items. During the time slots, ScanDay staff will work with participants to digitize the items and record descriptive information. Flash drives with digital copies of the items are given to the participants and the original items are then returned. The State Library will also retain copies and they will be added to its digital collection.
To reserve your 30-minute time slot, please call the library at (701) 774-8805.
