The InHOR project team will host a “bootcamp” training session from 9am-1pm at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania this coming Monday, July 9th, to onboard contributing institutions. Although the bootcamp is targeted at institutions participating in InHOR, any and all staff of PACSCL members are welcome to attend. The bootcamp will cover project content, context, and technical specifications. Those specifications and other project documentation may be found on this site’s documentation page. The bootcamp will also provide a more general introduction to standards and workflows for digitization, and will allow time for questions and comments.
If you’ve registered, check your email for a basic agenda! We look forward to seeing you soon.
