Class: Introduction to Collections Data Management
January 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The combination of digital collections management systems and the internet has presented galleries, libraries, archives, and museums with an unprecedented opportunity to make their collections information more discoverable and connected than ever; however, a lack of proper data management and governance can limit the usefulness of the information we share.
This class will provide an overview of several core data management frameworks, adapted for use in a cultural heritage collections environment, including the Data Management Body of Knowledge and the emerging Datapractices.org project. Attendees will gain an understanding of what good data management is, learn how to evaluate current data management practices within their own organizations, and take the first steps toward creating a data management plan.
- Understand why data management is important, and be able to convey that understanding to colleagues and their organization’s leadership
- Learn the core elements of good data management
- Identify tools to assist with data management planning and execution
