Data Management for Artists!

datat_art_036-mrkPanopticon is putting together it’s final/crowning event for the semester: a hands-on, DATA MANAGEMENT FOR ARTISTS workshop. We’ll be doing an overview presentation, but the bulk of the workshop will be breakout groups focused on providing arts-oriented data management counseling.

Do you know any artists who could use some help coming up with strategies for handling their digital assets? We’re talking systems of organization, tools and plans for incorporating metadata into their lives (including using controlled vocabularies), best practices in file naming conventions, approaches to preservation for different kinds of media, search engine optimization, the works.

Are you someone who’s interested in participating in the event on the LIS side? Let us know!

Saturday, May 7th from 1-5 PM.
