Galleries, libraries, archives and museums (the GLAM sector) — locally and globally — are embracing the possibilities of the digital.

This seminar will showcase the opportunities and challenges of turning our collections digital. How can we collaborate more effectively and build online spaces that encourage research, engagement and creativity?

Keynote presentation:

Rachel L Frick, Director of Business Development at the Digital Public Library of America, will share her organisation’s innovative model for a sustainable virtual library. Rachel will explore some of the fundamental questions — such as ‘Why digitise?’ — and demonstrate creative, unexpected uses of digital content. She will also discuss some of roadblocks, and look to what’s emerging on the horizon.
