Collect & Connect: Archives and Collections in a Digital Age

Van 22 tot 24 november 2020 wordt de conferentie Collect & Connect georganiseerd.

22 november t/m 24 november 2020
Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden

The aims of this international conference which officially concludes the NWO/Brill Creative Industries Project Making Sense of Illustrated Handwritten Archivesare twofold. First, to present results of finished and original research in the field of digitized archives and natural and cultural heritage collections. Second, to promote exchange and discussion between researchers and heritage professionals in the field of digital natural and cultural heritage. 

Thematic scope of the conference

In recent years, libraries, archives and museums have spent major efforts on annotating and enriching their digitized archives and collections with contextual information, in order to make them retrievable and interlinked in novel ways and enhance their reach and relevance for broader user groups. A major challenge in the field is the heterogeneous character of many of such digitized collections. Many handwritten archives and collections of physical objects in the realms of natural history, archaeology and art history entail combinations of textual and visual elements whose interpretation requires a range of different expertises and computational technologies.
