WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

The Digital era has changed how culture and heritage is consumed. Visibility and access to collections are a key priority to museums and public art galleries. Digitization of collections increases both visibility and access. Small and medium sized public art galleries and museums in particular are interested in knowing how to move forward with the digitization of their collections.

This workshop will explore building and sustaining digital collections and making them accessible, as well as understanding the impact on the museum and gallery. The presenters will discuss and share their knowledge from their institutional perspectives providing practical solutions, knowledge and skills.


WORKSHOP TOPICS:

  • Planning a Digitization Project: Case Studies from the McMaster Museum of Art and Oakville Galleries
    This component will provide participants with information about collections management and web publishing software used to publish collections information on the web. It will offer ideas for assessing an institution’s needs and establishing a digitization plan, suggestions for funding sources and descriptions of how copyright issues are handled. Additionally, an overview of ongoing digitization practices and policies will be provided and how digitization has been triaged at the McMaster Museum of Art and Oakville Galleries.
  • Connecting Collections to Audiences
    This topic will explore broadening audience engagement through online databases of objects, interactive websites and mobile technologies.
  • Image Licensing, Image Copyright and Image Quality
    Through this session participants will learn about different processes for creating and producing high quality images, best practices in image licensing and the different issues and complexities of copyright.
