CERL Seminar 2022

Digitising Cultural Heritage Collections: Lessons Learned and Forging Ahead

Tuesday 4 October: 9.30-17.00
Neill Lecture Theatre, Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute (Trinity College Dublin)

The Library of Trinity College Dublin and Trinity Centre for the Book Research Seminar will host the Consortium of European Research Libraries (CERL) Annual Seminar on Tuesday October 4, 2022, at the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute. Ten years since digitisation was last the subject of a CERL Seminar, we wish to bring people together to discuss the varied challenges research libraries face in the planning and realising of internal and collaborative programmes of digitisation for cultural heritage materials.

Speakers from various international and Irish libraries will comment on the state of the art of digitisation and the role of research libraries therein, presenting a variety of recent and ongoing projects. These include the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Folger Shakespeare Library, John Rylands Library, the British Library and the libraries of the National University of Ireland Galway and Royal Irish Academy. Through the seminar we hope to instigate a community-focussed discussion to problematise the maturing field of cultural heritage digitisation.

We warmly invite you to attend this in-person event free of charge. As space is limited, please email secretariat@cerl.org to register before 26 September 2022.
