A Global Gathering For Cultural Heritage Professionals
A few months ago we announced our Spring 2021 Round Table, we couldn’t be more excited that the online event is only a few weeks away! With that being said, what can you expect at this year’s event?
Our Round Tables initially began as small, one-off gatherings between Digital Transitions and our clients, as a formal way for us to gather the community’s collective feedback on their experience with our equipment and how we could work to improve it.
Since its inception, it has grown into something much larger – a true assimilation of cultural heritage professionals from across the globe discussing the latest in digitization, inspiring projects, and more. We hope this article gives you a preview of what you can experience at one of our favorite events of the year.
Expert Guests From Industry-Leading Institutions
Prepare yourself for inspiring and engaging conversations from some of the industry’s leading institutions. We are honored to have our clients like History Factory, the Smithsonian Institution, the National Park Service, and more, participate in our upcoming Round Table. With decades of combined experience in digitization, you will be immersed in extraordinary knowledge building discussions.
So who are the featured presenters? You can learn more about our special guests here. To name a few, we will have Jessica Bird, Acting Collections Information Manager at the Smithsonian Institution Department of Entomology, and Hannah Storch, Project Manager at Pixel Acuity, discuss their incredible natural history project – calling for the digitization of 30,000 social insects in just 6 weeks. This presentation is also a two-part series! You can join our service partner, Pixel Acuity, in their FREE webinar on Thursday, April 22nd at 2:30 PM ET to catch part one. Dr. Floyd Shockley, Collections Manager at the Smithsonian Institution’s Department of Entomology, will provide insights on their special physical handling workflows and mass digitization success. Learn more and register for the webinar here.
We also will have Jarob Ortiz, Large Format Photographer for the National Park Service’s Heritage Documentation Program Bureau present their transition from large format to digital capture, as well as how the new technology pertains to the NPS’s documentation workflow.
Plus many more great presentations we can’t wait to share with you! Read our official event program here.
Simple. Interactive. Access.
While we wish we could see everyone in-person this year, we are excited to connect on our online webinar platform Demio.
Demio allows for you to be more than a spectator. You will be able to directly interact with all the attendees and even our speakers! Ask our special guests questions or directly speak with them in-between presentations during our break-out sessions.
Our Round Table event is perfect for those looking to get more out of an ordinary online event. Join us to create meaningful connections with others, and learn directly from your peers. You can learn more about Demio here.
