*Access to Digital Collections that Take Bitstreams Seriously: Hands-on
with BitCurator, BitCurator Access and BitCurator NLP Software*
*7-8 June 2018 | The British Library, London*
Registration is now open for our BitCurator workshop
In this workshop, participants will learn about and gain experience with
products of the BitCurator, BitCurator Access and BitCurator NLP (Natural
Language Processing) projects. It will involve substantial hands-on
components, applying the tools on real digital materials.
Libraries, archives and museums (LAMs) are increasingly called upon to move
born-digital materials from their original locations into more sustainable
preservation environments. Information professionals must be prepared to
extract digital materials from removable media in ways that reflect the
rich metadata and ensure the integrity of the materials. They must also
support and mediate appropriate access: allowing users to make sense of
materials and understand their context, while also preventing inadvertent
disclosure of sensitive data.
*Who should attend?*
This workshop will be of interest to information professionals and
practitioners who are responsible for acquiring or transferring collections
of digital materials. We also welcome individuals involved in digital
preservation research, development and IT management, who will learn how
data generated by the BitCurator tools can complement and potentially be
integrated with data generated by other tools and systems.
- Learn about how digital forensics tools are applied and why this is
important for the preservation of born-digital materials
- Find out about tools and methods that can help support digital curation
- Get hands-on experience using the BitCurator environment
- Gain a practical understanding of how to apply these tools in your own
- Network with colleagues who are undertaking similar work.
