ABOUT

OhioDIG is an informal discussion group for archivists, librarians, and others interested in digitization of cultural heritage materials. We meet every other month in the central Ohio area (usually) for presentations and networking. Meetings are free but we do accept donations for the refreshment kitty. Meeting registration and other news is announced through the OhioDIG Listserv.

Formed in 2005, the group was on hiatus between spring 2009 and fall 2013, but has been meeting 6x a year since November 2013. Presentation slides and meeting notes can be found under past meetings.

The history of the group is covered by The Ohio Digitization Interest Group: Face to Face for Technology (PDF), published in the Society of Ohio Archivists’ newsletter Ohio Archivist, spring 2016.
