Warning message

The start date of this training opportunity has already passed

General information

Many Marine Libraries contain large quantities of unique and rare material in print format. Whilst this material may contain valuable information it is often under-utilised due to researchers increasingly relying on electronic information provision. 

The main aim of the workshop is to identify and outline potential new digital services and digitisation projects for Marine Libraries in the 21st century that will facilitate access to the unique records and literature they hold.  Different digitisation approaches and possibilities will be presented and explored with the aim of synthesising a practical, common way forward. 

 

Learning outcome:

(1) Examine the current textual based digital landscape relevant for Marine Science
(2) Understand methodologies of how relevant information from library material could be extracted and submitted to overarching initiatives
(3) Formulate potential future digital project proposals and identify potential funders
(4) Propose a way forward: agree on a common approach, the overarching aim and next steps.
