There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


This subject examines the theories, technologies and workflows involved in the management of digital assets – text, sound, still and moving images – through their lifecycle. Students focus on the storing of these assets in digital repositories and on their curation/preservation for future accessibility and usability, with particular emphasis on the digitisation and reformatting processes. The subject covers important topics such as development of functional requirements, usage protocols and processes, international frameworks, costing models and metadata standards. Students are expected to develop a prototype of a specialised digital repository as part of the subject drawing on theories and standards of professional practice, including ISO standards.
