Victorian Collections: Making Your Collection Accessible
Mon 29 Nov, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Topics covered in this workshop include:
- 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
