DCDC Conference: Memory and Transformation

19 - 21 Nov 2018

We are delighted to be sponsoring and speaking at this year's DCDC Conference in Birmingham

Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities is a collaborative conference series between The National Archives and Research Libraries UK. Now in its sixth year, DCDC brings together colleagues from across the archive, library, museum and academic sectors to explore shared opportunities, collective challenges, and to discuss how each sector can work more effectively with one another.

DCDC18 will consider the interplay between memory and transformation within heritage organisations and their wider impact on the cultural landscape. We will seek to examine how, through developing new points of entry to collections, archives, libraries, museums and galleries, we can work collaboratively with each other and academic organisations to meet strategic ambitions. Further, we will explore how to meaningfully engage with different audiences and communities whose far reaching interests can often have an equally transformational impact on our own professional cultures.

Don't miss our workshop on Tuesday 20th November at 4.15pm.

Engaging your Community with Active Digital Preservation & Access

This session will explore how affordable digital preservation and access software has enabled institutions to not only protect their valuable digital collections for the long-term but also encourage engagement from online communities and stay relevant by flexibly rearranging and enriching their digital archive overtime. Through a variety of case studies you will hear how Archivists and Collections Managers have achieved more in their role by using tools that free up their time and energy to focus on curating and sharing digital content, creating lasting value at their institution.
