This one-day workshop will bring together students, scholars practitioners from visualization, media, digital humanities and digital preservation to gain skills required to create “curation ready” projects. Curation ready projects are designed with an eye toward preservation and future use from the point that they are developed, easing the difficulty that is sometimes caused when trying to preserve digital items created in unstable formats. Through interactive exercises designed to allow for collaborative learning, attendees will gain information about the basics of creating a curation ready project. Attendees will also learn how to insert curation practices into existing projects.
This workshop will be of use for anyone managing a personal collection of digital items who would like to gain an understanding of how to manage those items for the future and beyond.
