Digital Repository Ireland (DRI) is hosting a series of one-hour seminars geared towards collection curators who do not have an archival background and do not have extensive experience with managing collections. The majority of the first series of sessions will take place in the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin, however we aim to repeat the course in locations outside Dublin over time.
The first seminar in the DRI Collection Preparation Series is 'Organising Your Collection', taking place on February 17th, 2016 at 10am. This one-hour seminar will introduce attendees to the basics of arranging collections of heritage material to facilitate cataloguing and discovery. Although the Digital Repository of Ireland's collection arrangement functionality will be discussed specifically, the themes explored in this seminar are applicable to both digital and non-digital collections.
The dates for all of the seminars are as follows:
Wednesday 17 February 10am: 'Organising Your Collection'. Royal Irish Academy.
Tuesday March 15th, 10am: 'Digitising Your Collection'. Location TBC (Dublin).
Friday April 15th 10am: 'Understanding Copyright'. Royal Irish Academy.
Wednesday May 11th 10am: 'Metadata Standards and XML': Royal Irish Academy.
Tickets cost €8 per seminar, or €30 for all 4 seminars booked together. Booking will be available shortly via Eventbrite
