An event is being held at the National Library of Wales to inform, discuss and share experiences on repositories and digitisation on Tuesday 23rd September 2014. This is a follow up event to the Repositories day held at Swansea University on 21st July 2014. Please see further details below of the programme and how to book.

We would like to invite you to the National Library of Wales on the 23rd of September to hear our experiences with repositories, digitisation and born digital material. The day is aimed at fellow practitioners and concentrates on operations and services rather than projects. We would like to invite WHELF LMS colleagues, WHELF Repository colleagues and any University Archivists that might be interested. The proposed agenda is as follows:

10:30 – 11:00 Coffee
11:00 – 11:30 Repository at NLW
11:30 – 11:45 ARCW context
11:45 – 12:15 Archivematica and ingest
12:15 – 12:30 Preservica
12:30 – 13:00 Intro to MabLab (forensics)

13:00 – 14:00 Lunch

14:00 – 14:20 The work of the digitisation studio
14:20 – 14:30 Screen and Sound digitisation
14:30 – 15:15 Visit to digitisation studio

The meeting will be held in the Drwm. We hope the day will be informative if you are planning any of the above services in your own institution and also show what services the National Library of Wales could offer if it was required. If you would like to attend the above event please contact Iona Bailey (

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you on the 23rd.
