Collaborating in medical history at DCDC15

Last month Paola Marchionni and Alex Thomas presented at DCDC15 at the Lowry in Salford. This now landmark conference in the area of digital culture and heritage this year included themes around digital collaboration and digital engagement. We were delighted to be able to share our work with the Wellcome Trust and RLUK on the UK Medical Heritage Library.

Paola introduced the session and explained how the project fits into Jisc’s digital content strategy. Alex then explained how Visualising Medical History has approached the different needs of the audiences and produced visualisations which provide hitherto unexplored ways into engagement, learning and research. Finally Dr Stella Butler from the University of Leeds, and the Chair of the UK MHL Academic Advisory Group talked about the lessons learned from sharing print management and digitisation over an array of stakeholders.
