Digital photograph collections present serious challenges but offer opportunities to leverage automation (from deduplication to face recognition) and collaborative, cross-departmental workflows. Come hear this panel of experienced archivists discuss steps taken, lessons learned, and best practices developed for working (and teaching!) with born-digital photographs.
