It’s just two weeks until our first workshop, ‘Exploring Models for Digital Access.’
After a spot of lunch and some time for participants to meet one another, the session will begin with a series of short presentations about three past strategies used by institutions in Scotland to expand their digital resources. The three highlighted approaches will be the Revealing Hidden Collections project initiated by University Museums in Scotland (UMIS), the Collections Navigator portal developed by Glasgow Museums, and the Scottish Cultural Resources Access Network (SCRAN).
After these presentations, each of which will be accompanied by a brief Q&A session, workshop participants will break-down into small groups to share and discuss their experiences working with digital resources, and strategies used to assess the impact and value of these existing models. It’s here that participants will have the chance to bring ideas to the table, and set the agenda for future events organised by the Scottish Network on Digital Cultural Resources Evaluation. What do you think have been some of the successes — but also failures — of past initiatives? What issues need addressing in order to provide resources that meet the diverse needs of users and those working in the cultural heritage sector?
