Description

Presented by Keith May at the 2015 CIfA Conference, Cardiff. To support and enable better sharing of increasing amounts of digital information using computer systems we need to understand better the often cross-cutting needs of different users of historic environment information. Ideas being considered as part of the Heritage Information Access Strategy include how to improve the capabilities for National, inter-regional (cross-border) and local (site/event specific) query and search system. Achieving better access for those seeking such historic environment information is as much about addressing potential changes to people's work practices and the resourcing issues of how to manage, share and curate such data, as it is about resolving the technical challenges and choices between data integration and data interoperability.
