This presentation will look at how legacy digitization procedures and policies were redesigned to make large scale digital projects more efficient. The manuscript collection we'll be highlighting, League of Women Voters of Texas, 1916-1997 and undated, is a 208 box challenge. Matthew McEniry, Director of the Digital Scholarship Lab, and Nathan Menendez, Lab Manager, will discuss how they analyzed and solved bottlenecks in the digitization workflow. They will discuss legacy and current workflows for digital image processing, project management software, repository metadata description, audit requirements, personnel management, equipment and software changes, archiving, and digitization standards.
