‘He aha kia Tuwhera? Why be open?’ with Luqman Hayes & Craig Murdoch

 

We will discuss why open access is important, what is going on with publishing and why that is a problem for librarians, for researchers and for society; and we will talk about Tuwhera and what we have learned in setting up an open access platform for research at AUT and how acknowledging Maori values forms a significant part of the work we do.

Digitisation’s easy right? Those of us that do it, know that it’s not. Gavin Mitchell and Andy Fenton’s presentation is intended for those who want to move their collection digitisation activities from ad-hoc to developing an inclusive digitisation strategy.

 

We will give an overview of what you will need to consider before you even lift an object from your shelves, through the various steps to presenting your collection for interaction online, highlighting advantages and disadvantages of both in-house and outsourcing the processes surrounding digitisation. This webinar will introduce you to why, when, what and where questions that form the backbone of a digitisation strategy. 

 

Gavin Mitchell has an extensive background in strategy and large programme delivery and brings his years of experience to the subject of creating digitisation programmes.

Andy Fenton is known to many of us and has ‘probably overseen more digitisation projects than any other kiwi’ to quote his bio… he’s also a bit of a Digitisation Standards guru and self-professed would-be librarian.

Digital NZ Series 

Is your library regularly fielding homework queries from students? www.digitalnz.org is a fantastic website for students and first-time researchers as it provides easy keyword access to over 300 digital collections from across Aotearoa, including images, theses, video, audio, newspapers, and archives.

This webinar will provide a general overview of DigitalNZ. We’ll cover how the site works, what you can find there, and tips and tricks for refining your search. We’ll also cover “stories”, which are DigitalNZ’s fun tool for collecting together your favourite items, writing something about them, and sharing your creation with the world. “Stories” are a great tool for writing school assignments and encouraging digital literacy, as students can keep their writing right alongside fantastic resources from trusted organisations.

Digital NZ Series

This webinar will provide an introduction to DigitalNZ’s Application Programming Interface (API). Though it may sound intimidating, the API is a simple data service that gives you access to the millions of metadata records that DigitalNZ brings together from organisations across Aotearoa. The webinar will cover: What is an API? And how does it work? Who is using DigitalNZ’s API and what are they doing with it? We’ll also share some ideas we have for the potential future use of this data.

October 17th  12-1pm

Digital NZ Series 

Does your library have a special or archival collection that you are thinking about digitising? Copyright for digital cultural heritage collections is tricky, but the rewards for getting it right are great. DigitalNZ has been a strong proponent of clear, consistent, and “open” rights statements since the team’s establishment in 2008 and, to this end, provides advice and tools for those undertaking digitisation. Thomasin will talk through some of the tools available in DigitalNZ’s “Make It Digital” guides and share some exemplars of rights statements in the digital collections of several New Zealand libraries. Thomasin will also share the work DigitalNZ is currently undertaking to update and refine DigitalNZ’s usage statements (currently, “Use commercially”, “Share”, “Modify”, or “All rights reserved”) to better reflect the modern online environment and make it clearer for people as to what they can and can’t do with digital heritage materials.
