Planning an event on "Cataloguing Born Digital Material"
Thanks to all who have contacted me off list. Plans are firming up. A provisional plan for the event looks like this...
10.20 General Welcome and Introduction
10.30-12.00 Setting the scene presentations – it would be good to have 3-4 15/20 minute presentations from individuals who are already tackling the issue of cataloguing born digital material from different angles, e.g. perhaps someone from the RM angle looking at how to import metadata from EDRMS directly into archive systems, someone looking to sync metadata between archive systems (e.g. CALM) and digital repository solutions, someone (or two) dealing with devising a workflow for accessioning new digital/hybrid deposits (or re-cataloguing existing ones) who has a handle on any issues with ISAD(G), arrangement etc.
13.00-14.30 Introduction to break out groups. Getting people into small groups to share experiences and identify problems and solutions
14.30-15.00 Tea and Coffee
15.00-16.30 Reporting back and next steps
As I have said nothing is quite set in stone, so if you have any comments on or suggestions about the above, please leave them below.Last replied by Jenny Bunn on Monday, 08 September 2014
