Digitisation, Curation and Two-Way Engagement
Following the success of projects such as the University of Oxford’s Great War Archive, JISC has continued exploration into the concept of community collections, that is digital resources that are created or enhanced by both user groups inside and outwith traditional academic audience. The report
|Digitisation, Curation and Two-Way Engagement|
was a feasibility study on this approach, looking at some of the policy and organisational issues that it raises.
Aims and objectives
- Articulate the purpose, advantages and benefits of such an approach to creating and curating digital collection
- Identify potential subject areas or topics where there could be a fruitful dynamic between the university sector and the wider public
- Provide recommendations on how such a programme of work could be instigated
