ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW. MODULE 4: DIGITISING BOOKS AND PHOTOGRAPHING OBJECTS
November 1, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$25 – $35
The RHSV is offering a series of 6 linked workshops which cover cataloguing and digitisation. This series of workshops starts with basic concepts and builds in complexity.
We have spaced the workshops so that participants have time in which to put into practice their new skills before the next workshop.
Some participants will want to book for the full series of 6 workshops and others will want to choose those individual workshops that are most suitable for them. So, although the series is designed as a cohesive whole, the individual workshops also work as stand-alone training sessions.
All workshops are limited to 20 participants and will be lead by Sophie Shilling, our digital expert. They are all to be held at the RHSV: Officers’ Mess Upstairs, RHSV 239 A’Beckett St, Melbourne. This room, unfortunately, is only accessible by a staircase – there is no disabled access.
MODULE 4: DIGITISING BOOKS AND PHOTOGRAPHING OBJECTS
FRIDAY 1 NOVEMBER 1PM – 4PM
In this intermediate digitisation workshop, we will introduce participants to best-practice digitisation techniques and procedures. Participants will have the opportunity to digitise books using a book scanner, and to set up a site for object photography. Then, we will introduce some image manipulation techniques including making thumbnails and watermarks. This workshop is aimed at those who are comfortable using a flatbed scanner and would like to expand their digitisation and digital image manipulation skills.
MODULE 5: LOOKING AFTER DIGITAL FILES
FRIDAY 22 NOVEMBER 1PM – 4PM
MODULE 6: MAKING COLLECTIONS ACCESSIBLE
FRIDAY 13 DECEMBER 1PM – 4PM
INDIVIDUAL WORKSHOPS: RHSV MEMBERS: $25 NON-RHSV MEMBERS: $35
QUERIES: +61 3 9326 9288 / OFFICE@HISTORYVICTORIA.ORG.AU
And, finally, a date-claimer for our first workshop in 2020:
FRIDAY 24 JANUARY 2020 1PM – 4PM, OFFICERS’ MESS UPSTAIRS, RHSV 239 A’BECKETT ST, MELBOURNE
This workshop is a stand-alone workshop which will be presented in partnership with AMaGA. It covers Born Digital documents – those documents that only exist in digital format. Although it is not part of our 6 module series it is naturally a good fit as a coda. So, this is a date-claimer as bookings for this stand-alone workshop will not open for several months yet.
