Managing Digital Media Collections
10 October 2013 - Full-day course: 10.00 - 16.30
£150 per full-day course / £275 for two-day Video Production course
This one day course will offer a model of digital collection management, based upon open source solutions. Attendees will gain hands-on experience of planning, building, managing and delivering a digital media collection.
Now that many important materials are in a digital form, building an accessible online media collection which successfully delivers images, sounds, video and other media is a goal of many institutions.
Until recently, expensive Digital Asset Management systems were the most viable option, but now open source server applications such as Dspace, Omeka and Drupal hold the promise of truly interoperable and standards-based collection management.
- Planning your digital collection
- DAMS, MAMS, CMS or repository: what's in a management system?
- Selection and preparation of content
- Defining your metadata: usefully describing your media
- Google and you: making your collection searchable via the web
- Sustainability and digital preservation
This workshop is aimed at attendees planning to build, manage or deliver a digital collection, especially those within the educational or cultural heritage sectors. You do not need any prior experience of collection management but familiarity with digital media (images, video or audio) would be an advantage.
Unless otherwise stated all of our training is run in our training suite at the University of Bristol.
