Archives play a vital role for most KQ organisations in linking people with their communities, their heritage and in their current work. From a wider perspective, archives can play a part in shaping research, history, public policy, education and culture.
While technology and the digital environment has posed many challenges to archives and concerns regarding the long-term preservation of records, it has also changed society’s expectations about access to those records.
This event will provide a forum in which people from across the KQ, who are working on or interested in learning more about archiving in the digital age, can discuss the challenges and opportunities a digital archive presents. Drawing from the wealth of expertise in our membership, we will consider the subject from a number of perspectives:
– managing an archive
– storing and displaying an organisation’s own collection
– technical requirements of digitisation
– the impact of copyright laws
Who should attend?
You must work for a Knowledge Quarter partner organisation. Please register with your organisational email on eventbrite here. If you do not work for a Knowledge Quarter partner, but would like the opportunity to share your experience and knowledge in this field with our group, please register your interest via email.
This event is a follow up to the KQ Future of Knowledge Conference, sponsored by British Land.
