Quick catch-up on some stuff before I embark on a long day of work …
Yesterday at Northern Exposure, I spoke about 100 Objects Bradford and how it illustrates the benefits of social media for archives. It was a really useful and inspiring day, post to follow … when the Handbook is done.
Here’s a great set of FAQs from the Library of Congress about RDA (the library metadata code replacing AACR2). I’m going to blog more about RDA in a bit … after the Handbook is with Facet.
Augmented reality is my new enthusiasm – check out this fantastic JISC project. Very excited by the potential here. Oh, post to follow … when the Handbook is done.
Bit of a theme here … No, the Handbook isn’t quite done. It’s in the snagging stage i.e. it’s written and I’m going through v. carefully to eliminate odd problems. (No Wimby for me till it is – well, I’m aware of what’s going on but I can’t spend hours sat in front of telly as is my wont).
