The National Archives will host a day for the United Kingdom Archives Discovery (UKAD) Forum in March again this year. This network is a collaborative group of archives and other information professionals who work towards opening up data in order to promote the use of archives through the sharing of ideas about online access to archives and their data.
At last year’s meeting project director Humphrey Southall presented about A Vision of Britain through Time. This year will see a presentation and demonstration of the new Old Maps Online website being launched on 29th February. There will also be a presentation by another member of the steering group for that project, Kimberly Kowal of the British Library, who will speak about their map crowd-sourcing project.
Attendance is free but places are limited. See their website for details on how to book a place.
