Community History Collections: Organizing Your Resources - Webinar (06/16/22)

In this session, we’ll focus on working with digitized materials. We’ll talk about description of resources and best practices including common metadata fields you will encounter in software, issues and opportunities with identity management of people represented in media, rights and licensing, tips and ideas for processing and describing unknown content, as well as software choices.

We’ll use Omeka.net, a non-profit, cloud-based solution that is easy to use and free (with some limitations) as we talk through examples and best practices that will be applicable to a variety of software interfaces.   

A comparison of software choices and a best practices guide for creation of description, will be shared.  

Audience: All staff interested in starting or working with community history projects; staff interested in technical services, metadata or cataloging; topics covered will also be of interest to those working with digital archives, special collections, and scholarly communications projects.
