This session is not part of the main SHARE calendar, and is being delivered as part of Saving The 70s, an HLF-funded two-year project which will enable 11 museums and heritage organisations to work with the local community to explore the impact of the 1970s. Priority will therefore be given to the project’s partner museums, but SHARE Museums East are pleased to be able to offer a limited number of places to the wider museum community.
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.
The training day will be covering the life cycle of digital assets from capture to storage, including software (heavily focused on images, but will cover other sorts too); managing retrieval, backing up, touching on copyright, and good principles for action planning and collections management principles.
Participants should be willing to complete a “health check” of their digital status before the workshop.
Morning refreshments will be provided but please make your own arrangements for lunch.
Bookings are closed for this event.
