3 Day UCLA Extension Course in Document Imaging - Document Management,
Winter 2000

For those persons who cannot attend the class, all of the class materials
are available free at http://www.ArchiveBuilders.com/abpapers.html

Almost all of the course materials have been updated, the course slides hav=
been added, so all of the course materials are now available on the website=
All the materials can now be downloaded as a single PDF file and printed
with one click.

Three days, Winter 2000: Thursday, January 27, 1:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Friday,
January 28, 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM, and Saturday, January 29, 9:00 AM to 5:00
PM, 2000, location TBA.  Courses are also planned for Thursday, March 30,
through Saturday, April 1, 2000 and for Thursday, June 22 through Saturday,
June 24, 2000,  The course is generally offered every quarter.

This course is for managers who have been assigned to manage a document
imaging system or digital library, and must start immediately.  Students
will gain an understanding of how document imaging can be used and managed
in both small and large-scale organizations.  Document imaging is the
process of taking documents out of file cabinets, and off shelves, and
storing them in a computer.  This course provides an understanding of the
details that there is often no time to review in the rush to implement a
system.  The course content is intended to be useful to students in their
professional work for twenty years into the future and is also intended to
be useful for planning to preserve digital documents forever.  Students wil=
learn about the technology of scanning, importing, transmitting, organizing=
indexing, storing, protecting, locating, retrieving, viewing, printing, and
preserving documents for document imaging systems and digital libraries.
Image and document formats, metadata, multimedia, rich text, PDF (Portable
Document Format), GIS (Geographic Information Systems), CAD (Computer Aided
Design), virtual reality indices, image enabled databases, and knowledge
management will be discussed.  System design issues in hardware, software,
ergonomics, and workflow will be covered.  Emerging technologies such as th=
DVD Digital Video Disk and very high speed Internet, intranet, and extranet
links and protocols will be discussed.  The course will include the DVD=92s
role in completing the merging of the PC and television, the merging of
telephony, cable, and the Internet, the merging of home and office, the
merging of business and entertainment, and the management of the resulting
document types. Many professionals including records managers, librarians,
and archivists work with document management issues every day.  While not
limited to these professionals, this course builds on the broad range of
tools and techniques that exist in these professions.  The class content is
designed so that students can benefit from each part of the class without
fully understanding every technical detail presented.  This course is
designed for non-technical professionals.  Several system designs will be
done based on system requirements provided by the students.  System designs
are done to provide an understanding of the design process, not to provide
guaranteed solutions to specific problems. There is no hands-on use of
scanning equipment.  The course is intended to improve the ability of
non-technical managers to participate in, and to direct, technical
