FREE 2 Day Digital Image Workshop - 7th & 8th July 2005

Schedule | Location | Accommodation | Booking (CLOSED)

To be held at the University of Oxford, hosted by the Learning Technologies Group, in collaboration with TASI, the Technical Advisory Service for Images.

We are pleased to announce a free two day digital image workshop at Oxford aimed at demonstrating current issues involved in digital image collections, together with a practical image training day.

  • Do you use, or want to use, digital images in your teaching?
  • Are you an owner of an educational image collection?

This workshop is aimed at anyone in HE or FE who may currently be involved in working with digital images in their subject area, or who might be thinking of setting up a departmental or community image collection for teaching or research.

Throughout the 2 days the CLIC team will be holding discussions to canvass opinion on the needs of image collections within the FE/HE community and there will be ample opportunity to meet representatives of various digital image support services. Your input at this workshop will help inform future policy on image collections.


The first day will include a series of talks and case studies around the issues of understanding image cataloguing and metadata, copyright and good practice, highlighted by a variety of case studies of small image collections.

The second day will include training for those who are considering the aspects of planning a subject-specific digital image repository. Subjects will include Metadata, Standards, Quality control, Planning, Software, Requirements gathering etc.

On both days there will be an opportunity to explore showcase examples of digital image collections and to discuss these with their creators, experts and other delegates.
