Session Description
In this session we'll discuss the digitization and preservation project undertaken by the Nixon Library in 2013. We will share the entire scope of our process in digitizing the Nixon White House Tapes from an analog collection to an almost wholly digital environment. We will offer a special focus on review and declassification. We plan to review the lessons we learned throughout and how the flexibility of a digital workspace helped us overcome many of the obstacles we faced.
