Kerstin Arnold and Jane Stevenson present a case study showing how the UK went from zero data to one of the leading contributors to the Portal through the benefits of interoperable data.
The United Kingdom Archives Discovery (UKAD) network is a collaborative group of archives and other information professionals, of which The National Archives is part, who are working towards opening up data in order to promote the use of archives.
The forum is an opportunity for archivists and information professionals to hear and share some of the latest thinking around online access to archives and archives data and share ideas around making archives more accessible through online development.
Kerstin Arnold is doing her doctoral thesis next to the work at the Federal Archives of Germany for the Archives Portal Europe – network of excellence (APEx) project. Jane Stevenson manages the Jisc-funded Archives Hub, an aggregation of archive descriptions representing over 225 institutions across the UK.
