Booking Information

This training is intended for organisations committed to becoming partners to the Know Your Place project by mapping collections data onto Know Your Place.

Spaces are restricted to one per organisation, to allow as many groups as possible to attend. The intention is that attendees share what they learn with their respective colleagues. Attendees should have IT skills, a basic experience of digitising collections, and have enjoyed exploring Know Your Place already.
