cardiShorts episode 1 – Home digitisation station

While we can’t bring our cardiParties to our community due to the COVID-19 lockdown, we are instead sharing cardiShorts. Short videos by members of the GLAM community working from home but still able to share an aspect of their work.

In Episode 1, Michaela Hart, Digital Archivist at Department of Health and Human Services, brings us into her home study to share with us how she has set up a digitisation station (using a tripod, camera, light source and Type 1 box) and demonstrating the digitisation process with a glass lantern plate.

Michaela hopes you’re doing well and her 10 minute video makes your feel better. Thank you Michaela, it sure did make me forget my troubles for awhile.

We invite our GLAM community to send us more short videos to share in this series. If you would like to share a video, get in contact with us. We’re interested in videos between 5-10 minutes related to an aspect of your work.

For filming tips, see Andrew’s recent blog post.
