Challenging our understanding of Digitisation


At the forthcoming Developer Happiness Days one of the sessions planned to take place will be exploring a DIY digitisation workflow:

Taking you from the act of scanning images and objects, learning how to process and edit them with software like ocrupus, blender and OpenCV, storing and manipulating them online and finally, through to printing their digital forms out, mashed together with comments, citations, automatic qr codes and even other digital objects!

While this session is not intended to showcase the same results one would expect to find on large scale institutional and heritage digitisation projects, the session might just force a consideration of digitisation practices and trigger off some interesting questions and dialogue.

So, if this confrontation with digitisation sounds interesting then there is an opportunity for attendance at this session by project members from JISC digitisation and eContent projects.

Spaces will be limited, so please contact me directly if you wish to register your interest:

And to find out a little more about this session you can read Ben O’Steen’s blog and his ideas for the “The Secret Life of the Book” session at the event.

And further information about the Dev8d programme is available on the Developer Happiness website
