Description
The planning and performance of digitization projects and the realization of sustainable indexing and preservation concepts require qualified staff. Knowledge about future-oriented archiving, efficient presentation and commercial use of digital collections is becoming one of the key competencies of companies and institutions across different disciplines. The low-residency certified program Digital Collection Management offers a compact introduction and access to the professional world of digital acquisition and long term archiving of visual material parallel to employment in 2 semesters. Experts like Harald KRAEMER, Axel ERMERT, Monika HAGEDORN-SAUPE, Holger SIMON, Christian BRACHT or Martin WARNKE teach the current state of knowledge in the inspiring UNESCO World Heritage landscape of the Wachau. Participants receive essential knowledge about hard- and software, selection, evaluation criteria and online archives. A special focus lies on the creation of practice-oriented project ideas and concepts. The transfer of project management know-how as well as legal and financial basics are some of the main focal points and will be deepened and applied in the students projects. The access to practice is strongly supported by two international database projects of the Department for Image Science and by the attached image collection, which is located at the Centre of Image Science at Göttweig Abbey.
