*Meeting Topic*: Advocating for Digitization Resources

– *Angela O'Neal*, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Manager, Local History &
*Abstract*: Building a digitization program is a complex process that
requires the ability to advocate for your needs. At CML, we have doubled
our digital collections staffing, increased supply and equipment budgets
and developed a comprehensive digital collection program since I started in
2013. For this presentation, I will discuss how to develop a long-term goal
and then advocate for staffing, equipment and resources.

– *Tressa Graves*, Former AV Assessment & Process Assistant at Ohio State
– *Amy McCrory*, Ohio State University, Digitization Program Manager
*Abstract*: OSU Libraries advocated for a full time, dedicated audiovisual
assessment professional to help the organization understand the extent and
nature of our holdings and make informed decisions about selecting items
for digitization. A project based, term appointment was created to fulfill
the role. Our presentation will consider if a project is really a project,
and the limitations of term employment, along with the successes achieved
during the three-year term. Ethical considerations, changes in library
department structure, and unforeseen developments will also be addressed.
