Welcome to the NTKN Digitization Wiki
This toolkit is designed to be a starting point for transportation librarians who are planning a digitization project. Resources included in the toolkit range from general information about digitization and sample projects to actual plans, standards, equipment options, and other project aspects to consider before beginning. The resources contained herein are not exhaustive, but will provide a solid basis for those who have never completed such a project before. The NTKN Digitization Working Group does not endorse any vendor or product mentioned in the toolkit.
If you have any suggestions for items or resources to be added to this toolkit, please leave us a comment.
