From the State Library of South Carolina:
Libraries often have photographs, local histories, maps, family papers and/or genealogical documents that could reach a wider audience if digitized and made available online. The South Carolina State Library’s new Digitization in a Box Project allows South Carolina’s public libraries with limited resources an opportunity to highlight their unique collections.
The Digitization in a Box Project allows public libraries in South Carolina to borrow scanning equipment, laptop, and software from the State Library to start a new digitization project. Staff from libraries who participate in this program will be provided hands-on training from State Library staff on best practices of scanning, workflows, metadata, and promotion. Equipment will be loaned for a 2 month period.
