The Digital Collaboration Colloquium
LIFE-SHARE organised a Colloquium at Sheffield University in March 2011, to close the Project. The focus of this event was collaborative digital content, to include all areas of the digital lifecycle from content creation through metadata to preservation and long term storage, and everything else in between. The aim of the Colloquium was not only to share past experiences of collaboration but also to start new conversations about future possibilities. This page contains the presentations used on the day, with kind permission from their authors.
We have archived all the tweets from the day - you can view the twapperkeeper archive here. This should add some more context to the presentations below. (A couple of things to note about the archive - we had over 200 tweets using the tag #lifeshare during the event, but by default the archive will only display the last 10. Also in the event of other twitter users using the term 'lifeshare' these references will, unfortunately, be added to the archive at the top.)
The first presentation was Digitisation, collaboration and WHELF by Peter Keelan. Peter is Head of Special Collections and Archives (SCOLAR) at Cardiff University, and WHELF is the Wales Higher Education Forum:
We hope to be able to embed Knitting a New Pattern for the Future by Linda Newington (University of Southampton) shortly.
Next was The green-eyed monster: bringing the Yorkshire Theatres playbills project to life by Helen Westmancoat and Lydia Stafford (York St Johns University):
