Built Heritage and our Digital Legacy

A one day CPD course to be held on the 8 November 2017 for historic building specialists who have little experience in digital archiving and the management of digital data.
8 November 2017
University of Leicester, Main Campus

The course is aimed primarily at historic building specialists working in commercial, independent and research environments, who have little experience in digital data management or preparing data for archiving. The course will be of particular interest to those who maintain large data sets and need to more efficiently manage and preserve their data for the future.

This course will provide much needed training for the growing number of historic buildings professionals who are increasingly being required to deposit data with a trusted repository as part of planning conditions.

Course Aim

The overarching goal of this course is to improve participant’s understanding and practical skills in digital data management for the long term preservation of historic built environment data.

Learning Outcomes

  1. An understanding of the current concerns surrounding digital techniques used to record the build environment.
  2. An understanding of the importance of good data management practices for recording the historic environment.
  3. Knowledge of how to record events using OASIS and deposit data and using ADS-easy.
