Working with digitised collections — the raw material

Digitised collections have many of the same management issues as physical collections, and need careful planning and rigorous documentation if you want to avoid getting in a muddle and have the information you need to create online content at your fingertips. In this Digital Heritage Lab webinar recording Kevin Gosling considers the raw material of all online collections content — digitised versions of real objects and associated information from collections databases.
