Title: Data Management Training in the Humanities - A Half-Day Workshop

Time and place: Oxford, 22nd July 2010, 0915-1400 (lunch included)

Description:

We would like to invite you to the 'Data Management Training in the
Humanities' workshop, which will take place on the morning of Thursday
the 22nd July, 2010 in Oxford. This half-day workshop will consider how
institutions might meet growing requirements for training in the
management of research data within the humanities. The aim is to learn
more about research data management training already taking place at UK
universities, plans for such training, relevant scoping studies, and
related experiences.

We are adopting a broad approach to 'data', taking it to mean not just
structured information on computers, but the whole range of materials
that researchers must assemble and analyse in order to produce their
research outputs.

Although the focus is on data management training in the humanities, the
workshop will hear experiences from other disciplines as well.

The workshop is being organised as part of the Sudamih Project
(Supporting Data Management Infrastructure in the Humanities), funded by
the JISC. The project seeks to develop tools and training that will
enable researchers in the humanities to organize their information more
effectively.

For more information about the workshop, please visit the project
website:  http://sudamih.oucs.ox.ac.uk/training_workshop.xml .

To register for this event (free of charge), please email

Yours,

James A J Wilson (Sudamih Project Manager)
Michael A. Fraser (Sudamih Co-Director)

        Subject: digital curation, archives, and forensics at BL (July 5)

Many readers of Humanist, including those arriving early for DH 2010,
may be interested in this day of talks, demos, and discussions Jeremy
John has put together at the British Library:

Authenticity, Forensics, Materiality, Virtuality and Emulation
Advances in the curatorship of personal digital archives

Start: 05/07/2010 - 10:00
End: 05/07/2010 - 17:00

Synopsis
Recently there have been some significant and exciting advances in the
curation of personal digital archives. Seemingly distinct aspects of
computing have come together to yield a vision of future curation and
research in the archival context. A combination of novel technologies
and processes are making it possible to offer scholars a rich and
evocative experience of emulated and virtual environments, both
locally and remotely.

This seminar explores and critically reviews some of these advances, a
number of which have been made by colleagues within as well as beyond
the British Library. In addition to an inspiring group of invited
speakers, members of the Personal Digital Manuscripts Project at the
British Library will give talks about various aspects of the digital
curation of personal archives.

It is anticipated that the seminar will be of interest to all
professionals working with personal archives, as well as digital
preservation specialists and information scientists.
