This September JISC Digital Media are hosting two free seminars focusing on
key topics for individuals involved with digital media. The seminars are funded
by the Joint Information System Committee under the 'JISC ITT Workshops &
Seminars: Achievements & Challenges in Digitisation & e-Content' strand.
Seminar Topics and Dates:
Successfully Building and Managing Digital Media Collection
Date: 15th September
In order for a digitisation project to provide useful, effective content many
interlinking aspects need to be considered. This seminar, which draws on the
knowledge of experts in the field, considers some of the vital facets which lie
quite apart from the actual act of digitising. Topics range from case studies
of large, successful projects, recording accurate and relevant metadata,
rights issues and balancing the demands of users and stake holders.
The Digital Media Collection +100 Years
Date: 16th September
Obsolescence, deterioration of physical storage media or withdrawal of
institutional support: just what will prove to be the greatest threat to the
materials we digitise today? This seminar projects one hundred years into the
future and attempts to predict the future ‘preservability’ of what we digitise
today. This seminar will examine changing user demands and inevitable
developments in technology.
Both seminars will be held in Bristol
