Event Details

Tuesday 25th February


The February CAKE morning will be themed around Digital Heritage, with prensentations from Orangeleaf Systems Ltd, Sampad South Asian Arts and Leicestershire County Council.  


James Grimster from Orangeleaf Systems Ltd will be talking about COPEing strategy : API centred approaches to state of the art Digital Heritage.

Orangeleaf Systems Ltd develop and run CollectionsBase, a software as a service system connecting many different collection management systems across archives, archaeology and museums to web, mobile, in gallery and facilities management systems.

Presentation on Create Once, Publish Everywhere concepts and the application to scalable, sustainable Digital Heritage Projects. The presentation will provide background discussion of current COPE strategies, and will then detail our approach at Sussex The Keep.

He'll be presenting how from multiple Archive, Museum and Archaeology systems we've integrated data from these managed sources and thesauri systems into document ordering, WordPress and User Generated Commenting websites, public facing and facilities management mobile web applications and digital surrogate viewing multi-touch screens.


Katy Wade from Sampad South Asian Arts will be talking about My Route

After completing an MA in Heritage Management, Katy was accepted onto the Cultural Internship scheme run by the University of Birmingham, where she worked with Sampad to create an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a local history project they wished to deliver. Over the last 2 years she had been working with local communities and several partners to create a second stage application for this project (My Route), looking at how digital technology may enhance the learning experience, and co-ordinating the project in general.

The presentation will look at the digital elements to our project My Route, (particularly our interactive map), examining the development and methodology Sampad went through to determine where, and if, digital technology should be used in the project. It will highlight the role of the DHD hub, as well as some of the issues with design and practicality we had, as well as what feedback we got from our focus group.


Lucia Masundire from Leicestershire County Council will be talking about Click; Connect; Curate; Create Project Commissions

Click; Connect; Curate; Create is a research & development programme looking at how Leicestershire County Council can use exiting digital content to encourage engagement with collections and visits to our museums. They are currently in the process of commissioning 5 development projects that will allow us to explore what potential digital content we can use to achieve this. They are also commissioning researcher(s) or educational consultant to undertake an assessment of our existing collections and make recommendations on how we can use these to create STEM related online resources. Lucia Masundire will be there to talk about the commissions and answer any questions people may have before applying.

More information about the project and the full commission details can be found at http://connect-curate.com/


Given the wide and diverse range of academics, businesses, students and Heritage organisations working collaboratively on the DHD project, we will be hosting free monthly “cake” (Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange) mornings to showcase current developments, discuss funding opportunities and tackle current challenges. Plus - there will be cake!
