This workshop identifies problems with current data authoring and representation processes in the arts and heritage sector and introduces a new perspective on documentation. It demonstrates how computer data can provide richer narratives which are relevant to wider audiences, improve internal knowledge development, support meaningful engagement and collaboration, and provide a dynamic and contextual approach to growing and integrating knowledge.
It is aimed at humanities and heritage specialists who provide historical context including curators, historians, archivists, librarians, conservators and scientists. The workshop is intended to inform new content practices and strategies.
It includes presentation, discussion, exercises and organisational examples using the ResearchSpace knowledge base system.
