This free one-day conference focuses on some of the key strategic issues faced by content creators and publishers today and which were addressed by the JISC eContent programme 2009-2011, http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/digitisation/econtent.aspx, in particular:
- the need for institutions to develop the necessary skills and strategies to embed digitisation within institutional strategies and practices as well as devise effective business models for the long term sustainability of digitised content
- the need to break down silos of content by clustering existing and complementary digitised resources and enhancing their offerings, thus making them more relevant and usable for target users
The day will bring together a mixture of national and international speakers and representatives of the projects funded under the JISC eContent programme to discuss current challenges and opportunities.
If you would like to give a brief presentation (3-5 mins) of work you have done within your own institution relating to the topics above, please indicate it in the registration form – see link below – and we will be in touch with you.
