This unit is an introduction to the diversity of cultural heritage collections and the techniques used to describe, manage, use, and explore them. Collections document our lives, memories, and culture. Creating and maintaining collections is a core activity of most galleries, libraries, archives, and museums. Students will identify key issues affecting the development of collections, and explore how digital technologies can be used to improve public access and engagement. Through a series of practical examples, students will review systems and standards used in the documentation and display of collections, and gain experience in the use of digital tools to capture and enrich collection data.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Discuss the social, political, technological, and institutional contexts within which collections are created and described;
2. Explain the technical requirements for describing and managing collections;
3. Recognise how digital tools can be used to describe and enrich collections; and
4. Identify opportunities for enhancing the discovery and use of collections.
