The Birmingham Conference and Events Centre
Join the discussion
DCDC (Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities) is a collaborative conference hosted by The National Archives and Research Libraries UK (RLUK) which attracts delegates from the galleries, libraries, museums and archives sector.
Jisc is a sponsor of the 2018 DCDC event.
2018’s event will consider the interplay between memory and transformation within heritage organisations and their wider impact on the cultural landscape. The event will seek to examine how, through developing new points of entry to collections, archives, libraries, museums and galleries, we can work collaboratively with each other and academic organisations to meet strategic ambitions.

Wednesday 21 November 2018
10:45-12:15 - Driving transformation
The Jisc sponsor presentation is scheduled to take place at the end of P8. Digital memories: preservation, interpretation and re-use.
Speaker: Neil Grindley, head of resource discovery, Jisc
Jisc sponsors and attends DCDC because it is an event where people who are excited about the value of content and collections come together to discuss how best to make that value clearer to the wider community. But we are also present as a digital services provider who can help with the sort of transformations that are thematically important to this year’s DCDC conference.
This presentation will briefly talk about some of the ways that our products and services help to drive scholarship and empower archives, libraries, galleries and museums to get the maximum benefit from using digital techniques and tools.
Full booking details and pricing, can be found on the DCDC website.
Event registration closes on Friday 19 October 2018.
