Conference and workshop on knowledge management and imaging

National Palace Museum (NPM) Experience:
Conservation Database of Artifacts:
Artifacts Knowledge Management Conference and
Techniques in Digitization Workshop

National Palace Museum
Taipei, Taiwan
23-24 July 2009

The Conservation and Preservation Department of the National Palace
Museum joined "The National Digital Archives Program (NDAP)" in 2005
to implement the Conservation Database of Artifacts (sub-project 5).
The mission of this project is threefold: firstly, retrospective
digitization of existing records, which has been produced since the
early 1970s; in addition to future digital documentation; and
finally to incorporate this new Database into the National Palace
Museum's collection management system. Thus, the aim of Artifacts
Knowledge Management can be achieved by one single retrieval system.

Our conservation treatment and radiography of artifacts have been
historically documented in print form, including paper files,
annotated drawings and film-based images: photographs, negatives and
X-radiographs. By carrying out this digital archive project, we are
able to review the state of conservation documentation in paper
format, to solve the backlog, and to catalogue the film-based
images. Therefore, one of the primary goals of this two-day
symposium is to share our practice methodologies for the
digitization of existing handwritten documentation and for the
digitization of conservation images and X-radiographs. Besides, the
complex issues of access to conservation information will be also

The conference invites speakers who specialize in the field of
'computed radiography' and 'digitization of conservation
documentation'. We hope to dialogue with conservation community
world widely and to brainstorm with museum colleagues about the
ideas of conservation database as a means to Artifacts Knowledge
Management and the methodologies for the digitization in
conservation records and radiography.
