Non-standard Archiving of Research Outputs Workshop
13th May 2014
Nottingham Trent University
The aim of this Workshop is to exchange knowledge about the online archiving of non-text based research. While the online archiving of books, journal articles and conference papers is relatively straightforward, Art and Design research presents a number of challenges. Visual materials can include the recording of artefacts, exhibitions, performances, photography and film. Eligibility of the author and the work itself, its relevance, validity of detail, layout, format, and copyright details are important considerations in both acquiring the material and its accessibility.
