Subjectivity in Digitization

Chalifour, Joshua

Park, Eun

This purpose of this study was first to elicit information from archive and library professionals that engaged in digitization projects about the ways in which they made selection judgments. Second, it was to see whether there were common themes in their experiences, which could be given some sort of formal recognition. It investigates subjectivity in an effort to both complement existing guidance on how archivists and librarians themselves influence their digitization selections; and to make this subjectivity more transparent.
