I am about to undertake a project to digitize hundreds (or thousands) of photos. My method may result in either a black or cork-colored border on the sides of some of the photos (shooting them with a video camera). Does photoshop offer an automated way to remove these borders, without individually editing each photo?

Thank you in advance for any input you can provide.

You would need to create an action to automate the process (Google Photoshop action tutorials)
If the border is of a uniform thickness (pixel width) on each image, you could create an action that opened each image, selected all the image (ctrl+a)
Then Select>Border and input the width of the border to be removed by the next step, which is delete.
You would then do a save as and save the file to another folder. Easier than a rename.
To run your action, you go to File>Automate>Batch. Filling this step should be explained in any action tutorials you find.
