Two new members join the DigCurV network
The Centre for Cultural and Industrial Technologies Research at the University of Portsmouth in the UK, and the Estonian National Museum have joined the DigCurV network.
DigCurV is pleased to announce that two new members have joined the network:
The Centre for Cultural and Industrial Technologies Research (CiTech) was established in 2009 at the University of Portsmouth to focus on the application of advanced computer-based technologies in a wide range of domains (digital preservation, healthcare, manufacturing, defence & security, education, entertainment, knowledge management, science etc.) and research into creative technologies and their impact on society. CiTech members are currently involved in projects on the preservation of digital objects: text, sound, and image files; multimedia documents, websites, databases, videogames to facilitate universal access to our cultural heritage by developing flexible tools for accessing and storing a wide range of digital objects. More information is available on http://www.port.ac.uk/research/citech/ .
The Estonian National Museum has growing digital collections and an interest in relevant training for its curators, and also has a role in helping county museums in Estonia with digitisation issues. More information is available from: http://www.erm.ee/?lang=ENG
