Training day at Newtown Library

On this course, you will learn about copyright, metadata and how to organise, scan and digitise photographs and documents

The course is a full day’s training where our team come to a venue in your area sharing best practice for making images web–ready and methods of creating master files for digital curation. The training will introduce you to People’s Collection Wales and all the features the website can offer.

The morning session covers important topics, such as copyright and metadata (essential for making items easy to search and find online).

The afternoon session focuses on the more practical elements of calibrating scanners and creating folders for different file types. You also get an opportunity for hands on experience at this stage.
