An event organised by the Digital Media Group of the Worshipful
Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers

Come to Stationers' Hall and hear about the exciting project to
digitise the Stationers' Company's priceless registers of books and
also about other digitisation projects undertaken by Oxford
University and the National Archives.

The programme and speakers will be as follows:

    Digitising the registers of the Stationers' Company

        Dr. Giles Bergel
        Tutorial Fellow, Merton College, University of Oxford

    Conservation and preparation for scanning archives

        Catt Baum
         Conservation Manager, the National Archives

    Case Study (1) First World War Poetry Digital Archive

        Dr. Stuart Lee
        Reader in E-Learning and Digital Libraries, Merton College,
        University of Oxford

    Case Study (2) Ships Log Books for Old Weather Project and Case
    Study (3) Jubilee Tributes to Queen Victoria

        Caroline Kimbell
        Head of Licensing, the National Archives

Digitising archives can create a huge technical challenge but a
successful project brings to life ancient documents and records
which may otherwise be locked away unseen. The Company's registers
of books deposited between 1554 and 1842 represent such a challenge
but with careful preparation a successful result will be achieved,
as typified by the fascinating illustrated case studies to be given
by our expert team of speakers.

All are warmly invited to attend. Tickets will be priced at UKP18
(inc VAT) to include drinks beforehand and a finger buffet
afterwards. Please book online at
