Event Details

As digitised collections move up the museum agenda this conference pulls together what we already know about content audiences and their needs.

Who wants our collections digitised, and why? Where should we focus our efforts? And what kind of content should we be creating in the first place?

Around the world, museums of all sizes are digitising their collections and making the results available online in increasingly joined-up ways. As the government here declares its ambition to ‘make the UK one of the world’s leading countries for digitised public collections content’, this year’s Collections Trust Conference steps back from data standards and technical matters – and considers users and their needs. It is not about how to digitise your collections, but rather why you might want to.

This one-day conference will explore a number of challenges that we all need to address if – as the recent Culture White Paper puts it – our users are ‘to enjoy a seamless experience online, and have the chance to access particular collections in depth as well as search across all collections.

On the day

  • Keynote address from Marco de Niet, Director of the DEN Foundation, on the Dutch national strategy for digital cultural heritage
  • Speakers describing a range of user scenarios for digitised collections, based on the most current research. Including Katie Moffat (Head of Digital at the Audience Agency), Jill Cousins (Executive Director at Europeana Foundation), Fiona Talbott (Head of Museums Libraries Archives at the Heritage Lottery Fund), Jane Finnis (Chief Executive at Culture 24), Dr. Maria Economou (Curator/Lecturer in Museum Studies at University of Glasgow and Hunterian Museum), Richard Leeming (External Relationship Manager at Research and Education Space), and Rheinallt Ffoster-Jones (Programme Manager at National Museums Wales).
  • Breakout sessions on what these user scenarios mean for individual museums and for the sector as a whole
  • Trade exhibition featuring relevant suppliers and organisations including: Modes Users Association, EDICO SK, Genus, The National Archives, FARO Europe, System Simulation, Todd White Art Photography powered by Asset Bank, Vernon Systems, AXIELL, Zeutschel UK Ltd.
  • Lunch and drinks reception

Afternoon/evening before
