Digitization can be costly, take time, and can mean extensive handling of original materials, which may be fragile. For these reasons the goal of any digitization project should be to create high-quality master images, audio, or video files from which many derivative images can be created for access and other uses. Quality control (QC) is an important part of any digitization project. QC includes procedures and techniques to verify the quality, accuracy, and consistency of digital files. Quality control should be conducted throughout all phases of the digital conversion process to ensure that the material is only needs to be digitized once, then used and shared many times.
