The Columbus-Lowndes Public Library System (CLPL) will host the online workshop "Introduction to Digitizing Photographs" on Thursday, July 16 at noon.


Photographs hold a special place in our hearts. Whether sharing snapshots with family and friends, decluttering the paper from one's life, or simply preserving memories in case of a disaster.


"Introduction to Digitizing Photographs" will help attendees learn how to digitize photographs and what equipment is recommended to get started. In addition, the workshop will discuss how to digitize fragile images, various file types and technical recommendations, and equipment and scanning tips. The workshop is for beginners.



The program will be taught by Elizabeth La Beaud, assistant director of the Mississippi Digital Library and Digital Lab Manager at the University of Southern Mississippi.


"Introduction to Digitizing Photographs" will be presented over Zoom and will only be accessible via a link. The link will be available on the CLPL's Facebook page, or receive it by contacting Mona Vance-Ali at 662-329-5304 or [email protected]


This program is made possible through the Society of Mississippi Archivists program of speakers and consultants. To learn more visit
