GRAP 103 season has started, and is already in full swing as museums, libraries, archives, and galleries rush to meet the deadlines for financial reporting at the end of this financial year. We are offering a range of support to help your institution prepare and to improve your GRAP 103 readiness.
We are pleased to announce our schedule of courses to be run from September to November 2015.
We are running workshops on SPECTRUM, Digitisation, Database Development, Web Development, Storage Management, and Project Management during this period, and we will be running these at our own ETHER Training Centre in the Central Drakensberg as well as in Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg.
Guide and copyright essentials
As digital collections become more and more important in the museum and heritage sector, we believe that all institutions should strive to become “Digital Institutions”. This means having access to digital resources, which includes digital information on the objects within collections.
Have a look at this useful short guide on digitisation by Collections Trust
Digitisation and Online Collections
Most museum collections include objects that were made by someone else and so it is vital that we are aware of our rights and responsibilities when it comes to managing and digitising this material.
