Capture

  • Visually check the quality of images as you make captures
  • Be careful when inputting numbers for automatic file naming

Working with metadata

  • Check existing metadata
  • Compare descriptions and filenames in spreadsheet with the digital objects

Optimization/saving to Share drive

  • Check to make sure the following are correct
    • Destination folder
    • File naming
    • File extension

Documentation

  • Enter all work at the end of the metadata spreadsheet, in the tracking columns
