What I Do
I am a research officer within the ISC at UKOLN. I am currently working on the JISC-funded Discovery Project in conjunction with MIMAS. The project aims to create 'a metadata ecology' to support better access to vital collections data in libraries, archives and museums. My primary responsibility is to support the creation and delivery of training materials based on case studies produced by the project.
My recent work at UKOLN includes the project management of two work-packages for the European FP7 digitisation project - IMPACT (IMPoving Access to Text), which was established to improve the quality and speed of the mass digitisation and OCR of historic text. This is now available at the URL http://www.digitisation.eu/.
I trained and worked as a photographer, before building expertise within digital imaging and digitisation but now wors mainly as a trainer and producer of Open Educational Resources.
