Recorded Webinar: Creating 21st Century Digital Collections
Creating 21st Century Digital Collections is an AASLH Continuing Education recorded webinar. This webinar is about strategizing, creating or updating, engaging, and sustaining modern digital collections. This event is presented by Kristen Gwinn-Becker. Join Kristen Gwinn-Becker, as she discusses strategizing, creating or updating, engaging, and sustaining modern digital collections. She will walk through the six areas outlined below, showing examples for each section. Participants may send an email in advance that contains a link to their digital collections and the top three questions they would like answered about their current situation or a future initiative. Kristen will work with examples from participants as well as draw on real (digital) world examples of digital initiatives from her international technology company HistoryIT. The different challenges these institutions faced and the innovative solutions that were employed to maximize user impact and sustainability will be shared with attendees. This webinar will focus on what users of digital collections demand now, and on sustainable best practices for converting or creating online platforms that not only grow with their users’ interests and expectations but also bring out the hidden stories each collection holds.
