Event Navigation

The Workshop presented by Sarah Chubb from the Derbyshire Record Office takes place on Friday morning, 16th July 2021 via Microsoft Teams and includes the following;

  • Physical care of photographs (packaging, where to store, wearing gloves etc.)
  • Documenting where photos have come from (i.e. knowing who owns them and what rights you have over them
  • Mechanisms for capturing metadata (spreadsheets / databases, minimum fields to use)
  • Describing photographs (resources to help date photographs, ensuring consistency in description, date formats etc., considering what information to record and potential research use – Black miners etc.)
  • Planning a digitisation programme (why digitisation isn’t necessarily the answer to all problems, being clear about the purpose of digitisation, being selective, copyright, need to have technical skills and knowledge, considerations about long term management of digital images)

People wishing to take part should either forward their e-mail address to Prof. Natalie Braber at Nottingham Trent University at natalie.braber@ntu.ac.uk  or let me know they wish to take part (by 9th July 2021).  Participants do not need Microsoft Teams installed on their PC’s to take part in the Workshop, entry will be via a link e-mailed to them prior to the event
