ADS staff will be out in force for the Center for Digital Heritage extravaganza of summer events taking place this July.

Centre for Digital Heritage Summer School

10 – 11th July 2014.  Berrick Saul Building, Heslington Campus, University of York.

The events begin with a new summer school aimed at Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers in the Digital Heritage domain.  Digital technologies play an increasingly significant role in heritage research. However despite their prevalence and potential it can be difficult to know how to integrate digital methods successfully into your own work. The CDH summer school is designed to help newcomers from any discipline learn the essential skills needed to build and run a successful digital heritage project; from getting the funding to archiving your data. Day 1 will focus on getting started. We will find out what makes a good digital heritage project and will go through the design process step by step. The day will feature guest lectures from the Digital Curation Centre, and funding experts, as well as from digital heritage researchers who have been awarded substantial grants for digital heritage research projects. Day two will be dedicated to the effective management of your project and the delivery of results. ADS will be contributing guest lectures and will help facilitate group activities.

Attendance is free to all White Rose (York, Sheffield, Leeds) research students and staff and includes overnight accommodation if needed.
