The Digital Repository of Ireland are pleased to present a specialist half-day workshop in using Open Refine to process and clean metadata and transfer it to machine-readable formats such as XML.
The Digital Repository of Ireland and Limerick City and County Council invite you to 'A Future for Digital Records in Local Authority Services' a day-long symposium on digital records and local authorities in Ireland.
The aim of the event is to establish the concrete steps needed at a regional and/or national level to coordinate efforts to secure the long term stewardship of local authorities’ digital records.
Speakers include local authority records managers, digital archivists, information specialists, and stakeholders in digital preservation who will talk about the approach they have taken to digital recordkeeping; preservation; access and meeting the digital demands of the current working environment.
The event will include an interactive session where stakeholders can discuss and collectively produce a series of considerations and actions for building a coordinated approach. No preparation is necessary!
This two-day workshop forms part of Identity, Representation and Preservation in Community Digital Archives and Collections, a 12-month project funded by a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (2018) held by Dr. Sharon Webb (Principal Investigator). It is an intervention in three important areas; community archives, digital preservation and content representation. The first workshop, ‘Digital Archives in Communities - Practice and Preservation’, will be held at the Sussex Humanities Lab 20-21st June and will feature a number of speakers and presentations by members of community archives as well as practitioners and researchers in archiving, digital preservation and arts practice. DRI will be represented by our Digital Archivist Kevin Long, who will be speaking on DRI's experience of working with community archives.
