Digitali .. what?
Hard to say?
This week, we had the opportunity to have a lot of workshops focused on the different areas of librarianship, one of them caught my attention, was the subject of digitization of collections.
It may sound like a threshing, but how does this area relate to sustainable development goals?
The first in the focus on goal 11, which is: Make Cities and Human Settlements Inclusive, Safe, Resilient and Sustainable ; if we look at it from a national (Costa Rica) perspective, libraries play the role of documenting and preserving information for future generations.
As information professionals we must demonstrate a significant added value to the collections through format change and make this sea easy to use; In addition, we must be very clear that digital copies of collections help preserve unique objects.
