  • 1. dha2014 BoF Beyond digitisation: preparing non-digital resources for the digital world and curation of digital resources in the GLAM sector

2. Which Flock are you? A murder of GLAM practitioners A mob of historians A parliament of DH practitioners. 3. Are we moving from an archive and library perspective - making resources available, but leaving the question of the contents open to a museum and art perspective? 4. Managing Schrodinger's Cat: an archival approach 5. A library perspective Erwin Schrdinger (1887 1961) Die gegenwrtige Situation in der Quantenmechanik (The present situation in quantum mechanics), Naturwissenschaften (translated by John D. Trimmer in Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society), 1935.[peer reviewed journal] Subject: History of Science; Philosophy Notes: may contain a cat Q530.112 6. A museum perspective Schrdinger's cat is a famous illustration of the principle in quantum theory of superposition, proposed by Erwin Schrdinger in 1935. In the experiment, which Schrodinger put forward as a thought exercise, a cat is placed in a box with a decaying atomic particles. The question of whether the cat is alive or dead is problematic until the box is opened. Box 2014/001. Cat on loan from RSPCA 7. The galleru Splitreason Schrodinger's cat t-shirt. Transfer, 2014. (Gallery collection 2014/13) 8. Are we digitising the right things, and are we presenting them in the right way? 9. Case study - #GovHack 10. We barely create time and momentum for people to interrupt their busy lives to consider visiting a museum with their precious spare time how can we expect it to be an different with our online content?
