| UK-SWANS Practical Digitisation Workshop|
|Date: 9 March 2018, 8:45 AM - 16:45 PM|
UK-SWANS Practical Digitisation Workshop. Participants at this event are staff caring for small and regional collections, essentially, non-national museum curators. This workshop will key in on ideas, models, and training for incorporating digitization at this level. The goals are to focus on practical recommendations that require very little in the way of additional budget or expertise where possible. Practical training may be offered in one or two key areas, for example, georeferencing, data standards, and review of recommendations based on the Five Task Clusters paper (Nelson, et al 2012). Future plans include repeating this event for other regional (non-national museum) UK curators.
This one-day event is funded by the John Ellerman Foundation and led by the UK's Bristol City Council's Culture Team as part of the 'South West Area Natural Sciences' (SWANS) project. Organizers include Bristol Culture, iDigBio and the Natural History Museum, London. People coordinating this workshop include: Isla Gladstone, Deborah Paul, Greg Riccardi, and Gil Nelson.
