Digital Heritage Hub
The Digital Heritage Hub was launched in 2022 by a number of digital and heritage experts including the Heritage Alliance, Media Trust, Charity Digital, Naomi Korn Associates (as the Heritage Digital Consortium), Arts Marketing Association and the University of Leeds. The consortium received funding from DCMS and the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of their Digital Skills for Heritage initiative. The consortium developed a range of free resources to answer 100 frequently asked questions from small and medium sized heritage organisations.
The aim of the project is to increase the amount of high-quality digital skills training, resources and support available to heritage organisations. The Heritage Digital Consortium focused on the area of “Finding, Creating and Sharing Digital Content”.
Naomi Korn Associates created bespoke training, online guides and resources to upskill the sector and build digital resilience around topics including:
- How to digitise content
- How to generate income from online collections
- How to reuse articles and images shared previously
- Top tips around open licence assets
- Legal and ethical responsibilities for sharing content online
- Top tips or copyright when sharing content online
- Top tips for data protection when sharing content online
- Using third party material in open licenced assets
- Budgeting for content creation and sharing.
