  • What/why/how of access and discoverability  
  • Subject tagging  
  • Alt-text and transcripts  
  • Access restrictions (legal and cultural considerations)  
  • Improving records with 'web health checks' using VC  
  • Curating a story (i.e. digital exhibition) with VC  

Victorian Collections workshops offer a relaxed and open environment and cater for participants with any degree of museum and computer literacy, as well as ongoing support for small to medium-sized collecting organisations.
