Sarah Holmes (Freelance Photographer and Museum Volunteer)
Supports work towards Accreditation Standard 2.5
Following on from three successful years running our Point & Shoot workshops on collections photography, freelance photographer Sarah Holmes, with Bishops Stortford Museum, has developed this exciting course which will discuss management of your digital images.
The session will be an opportunity to explore current and potential future issues regarding digital image management and organising your digital image library. Case studies from the heritage sector will help identify best practice options to fit your museum, and there will also be time for individual action planning around creating and maintaining a digital image library.
By the end of the course, participants will:
- Have a clear understanding of what managing a digital image library encompasses.
- Identify current and future issues of digital image management
- Identify best practice for their own organisation
- Be able to develop a digital image management action plan that addresses the issues and needs of their organisation.
This course is suitable for any small museum with digital images. Attendees should be in a position to take responsibility for planning and implementing their organisation’s Digital Image Strategy.
Participants should be willing to complete a “health check” of their digital status before the workshop.
Please note that this course will not cover image copyright. This will be explored in a separate course, Introduction to Image Copyright, on 17th October 2014 at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
Morning refreshments will be provided but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
This event is fully booked.
