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 from the Collections Trust looks at the raw material of all online collections content — digitised versions of real objects and associated information from collections databases.
The Digital Heritage Lab is a project managed by the Arts Marketing Association (AMA) in partnership with Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy, One Further and the Collections Trust and funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of the Digital Skills for Heritage initiative. It is a free programme for small and medium sized heritage organisations seeking to develop their digital capabilities and capacity.
