Presenting oral histories
Wednesday, May 25, 2022, at 13:00 EDT | 10:00 PDT | 18:00 BST
Oral histories allow people whose voices might not otherwise be heard to share their stories and experiences. But having captured these unique primary sources, how can they best be presented so that they can be heard and studied by researchers? Learn how institutions like yours are using our technology to present oral histories and take away actionable ideas for breathing new life into oral histories in your collections.
Stories from Australian archives, reimagined with digital storytelling tools in Quartex
Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at 13:00 AEST
Today, users expect more from digital archives than ever before. It’s no longer enough to consider ‘access’ as the availability of digital assets; your digitized materials – and the platforms on which they’re hosted – must work harder to be discovered and maintain engagement. From automated transcription and dynamic metadata to image viewer options and more, join us to learn how to tell and amplify the stories in your digital archive with discovery and engagement tools in Quartex.
How to use metadata-related features in Quartex to create discovery pathways
Digital archives are heavily dependent upon the scope and quality of asset metadata for their usability and searchability, but how effectively does your current digital asset management platform leverage metadata to create pathways for discovery? Discover Sonoma County Library’s approach to metadata (including the use of metadata-only records) and how the various metadata-related features in Quartex, such as controlled vocabularies and their related page types and content elements, are being used to facilitate exploration of this living archive.
