GIPPSLAND WORKSHOP 5: LOOKING AFTER DIGITAL FILES

April 18 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

$30 – $45

Bookings for this workshop are closed and it has been postponed until some time later in the year. We will keep our members informed as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds.

This workshop is the fifth in a series of six workshops on digitisation and cataloguing to be held at Federation University’s Gippsland Campus in Churchill. If you wish to purchase a discounted ticket to all six workshops click here.

This is a basic digital preservation workshop. The workshop will begin with brief project management skills including templates for policies and procedures. We will discuss digital storage, how to create backups, and how to check if files are damaged. Participants will learn how to describe an object using Dublin Core so that digital files can be discoverable.

The series of 6 linked workshops (three Saturday morning & afternoons over three months) cover aspects of cataloguing and digitisation. This series of workshops is progressive, starting with basic concepts and building in complexity.

Participants need to bring their own lap-top.

All workshops are limited to 20 participants and will be led by Sophie Shilling, our digital expert. They are all to be held at the library at Federation University’s Gippsland Campus in Churchill.

Tea and coffee are available throughout the workshop however participants staying for both workshops will need to bring their lunch.
