Cataloguing a Digital Collection and Digital Access
May 27, 2021 12:00 PM - 12:40 PM
Why do we catalogue our digitised files and what are the benefits of having your collections online?
Digital images can be made available for use by researchers and to engage new audiences from further afield. Sharing images on the internet means that they can be accessed from anywhere in the world, which increases awareness of your collections. You can put images on your own website, attach them to emails, post them to social media accounts or print them in your magazine or newsletter. Capturing the right descriptive data from a digitised document makes finding relevant content much easier and helps maximise research efficiency.
