We are pleased to announce the first workshops that we will be offering in 2014.

Due to continued requests and the positive responses to our SPECTRUM Best Practice for Collections Management and Do-it-yourself Digitisation workshops and training, we are offering these courses in Cape Town and in KZN early in the new year. Please go to ETHER Eduction for details and dates.

The SPECTRUM workshop introduces the concepts of best practices in the management of collections into the community of galleries, museums, archives and libraries. SPECTRUM, as published by the Collections Trust of the UK, is an established and internationally recognised standard for collections management.

The Do-It-Yourself Digitisation workshop introduces the basic concepts and practices of digitisation. The focus is not only on the capturing of images and other digital objects, but the entire range of digitisation efforts from initial conception, strategising, preparation, and through to eventual usage and publishing your collections online.
