Digitising the Archives
Tuesday 7th June from 1-4pm, onsite at the Royal Geographical Society
Many organisations are involved in, or planning to be involved in, significant programmes of digitisation of collections and archives. This session will give a ‘behind the scenes’ view of such an initiative at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) (RGS-IBG) – from developing a business case, through project planning, all that is involved in digitisation and conservation, through to the launch of a new platform and resources, to developing new approaches to research, teaching and learning, and opportunities of engagement with new audiences.
The digitisation project at the RGS-IBG is part of the Wiley Digital Archives initiative (https://www.wileydigitalarchives.com/)
This course is open to all LAHP students, doctoral students at one of LAHPs eight partner institutions (KCL, LSE, QMUL, RCA, RCM, RCSSD, SAS, UCL) and students from other DTPs (SMAC consortium).
The deadline for booking a place will be Wednesday 1st June at 12pm
