VENUE: University College London, UK
FEE: £ 20 (ISKO members and students FREE)
Access to cultural heritage collections and information is a hot topic with the public and even with some politicians. Information professionals in museums, galleries and libraries, including managers of virtual collections on the Internet, now have the opportunity (as well as the obligation) to harness technology and bring our cultural assets to the people. Even more, we can actively engage the public in tagging and otherwise participating in curation!
Come to this seminar to hear about current work with texts, archives, objects and museum collections, from both a theoretical and an implementation standpoint, and to look at a variety of approaches to the material including Web 2.0 solutions.
This ISKO UK open meeting is organized in cooperation with the UCL Department for Information Studies.
