Lucidea has announced that archives expert Margot Note’s new book, Lucidea’s Lens: Archivists and Archival Professionals; The Digital Decisive Moment: Transformative Digitization Practices will be available. The latest publication from Lucidea Press offers pragmatic advice from Ms. Note, a seasoned archives and records expert, consultant, and author, regular blogger, and popular webinar presenter.
Archivists have entered the digital decisive moment, where digitized and born-digital images have substantially departed from the legacy of analog materials. This book provides a foundation related to digitizing historical materials. It intends to be a reference for institutions converting resources to digital form while maintaining both analog and digital collections. The book advocates integrated initiatives, from selection to access to preservation, emphasizing the intersection of objectives and applications. Readers will learn to define their project needs, evaluate their options, and manage the digitization process.

She received her Master of Arts in Women’s History from Sarah Lawrence College, and holds a Master’s in Library and Information Science and a Post-Master’s in Archives & Records Management, both from Drexel University.
