(18 Jul 2022) DCDC stands for Discovering Collections, Discovery Communities. It is a cross-sectoral conference, hosted by The National Archives, RLUK and Jisc, that brings together the GLAMA sectors (galleries, libraries, archives, museums and academia) to shine a light on our shared experiences, innovations, interests and concerns. DCDC22 explored how digital innovation is transforming the cultural heritage and academic sectors and their relationship with their audiences.
Emerging technologies have brought considerable benefits to cultural heritage organizations, transforming approaches to institutional collections, our ways of working, and the way people discover and engage with collections. As research continues to drive innovation, the conference asked how can we ensure that our practices remain relevant, open, inclusive, representative and transformative? How can our practices in turn enable new innovations?
