Knowledge Exchange Event

A Knowledge Exchange Event will be held just prior to the conference, from 2-5pm on 18 June, 2014, at the University of Melbourne.  The aim of this informal, seminar-style event will be to share learning from the Play It Again project.  The draft program is now available here and is also pasted below. This event will be held in the Old Arts Theatre room 107 (William Macmahon Ball Theatre) at the University of Melbourne. Please refer to the location map for directions.

Play It Again represents something of a ‘first’ in that, to our knowledge, it is the first digital preservation project to have been funded as research, in Australia.  It has brought multidisciplinary expertise to bear on digital history and preservation efforts, which has also not been common in locally funded research teams to date.

The team will present on a range of facets of the project – historical, legal, technical, museological – which is coming to the end of its second year (of three).

Rather than present academic papers, we will reflect on the practicalities of undertaking this project on born digital heritage at the moment, so that there are tangible ‘takeaways’ and scope for discussing next steps in this area of research and practice.  Ample time for questions and discussion will be scheduled.

Everyone is welcome and the event is free.  All that we ask is that you RSVP so we know how big a room to book.  (Please email to advise your attendance.)
