Digitization

What is Digitization?

Digitization is the process of converting a physical item or analog signal to a digital object. The digital surrogate created during this process is then hosted on the BCRDH portal.

As part of the digitization process, basic metadata information is also recorded. The way that our database works, we are able to upload the digital surrogate and its information together through the use of a shared filename.

Different types of materials require different digitization specifications, workflows, equipment, and software. Use the green menu on the right to learn more about digitizing different formats and get started digitizing your own items.
