Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper explores ways in which scholarly skill and expertise might be embodied in tools and sustainable practices that enable communities to create and manage their own digital archives. We focus particularly on tools and practices related to the recording and annotation of digitised materials. The paper is based on co-production practice in two very different kinds of community. Although the communities are different we find that tools designed specifically for one are valuable for others offering the promise of general tools to support community-centred digitisation and potentially also traditional archival practice.
