Matapihi

Matapihi - at www.matapihi.org.nz - is the first National Digital Forum collaborative project. 

 

Matapihi is a window onto the heritage collections of New Zealand's archives, galleries, libraries and museums. It provides a single point of access for over 100,000 selected films, images, sounds and objects. It is similar in concept to Picture Australia and Images Canada.

2007 National Digital Forum

 

Digital Realities - Communities, convergence and sustainability

 

The National Digital Forum 2007 conference was held at Wellington Town Hall on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 November 2007. Output from the proceedings are now accessible.

 

Digital realities: communities, convergence and sustainability was the theme for NDF 2007. The conference looked at what we have been doing, who we are doing it for, and how to ensure that what we do today will be accessible and relevant tomorrow.

 

Communities were the focus, from educators and learners to our Pacific neighbours...what end-user communities are out there, how are they using digital cultural heritage content, and is it meeting their needs?

 

Speakers also provided insight into the range of new digital products, services and opportunities that arise when the worlds of entertainment, computing and communications combine; and considered the sustainability of our digital content.

 


2006 National Digital Forum

Participating with Communities: Digital opportunities, collaborations and celebrations

The National Digital Forum 2006 was held at Soundings Theatre, Te Papa on Thursday 30 November and Friday 1 December 2006. Output from the proceedings are available for download.


The 2006 National Digital Forum conference focused on creating digital content with an eye to the future. What will be expected of museums, archives, and libraries to reach end-user communities in the future, and what do we need to do today to get there?

International and local speakers offered case studies and their insights into where digital content delivery is heading in the culture and heritage sector. The conference also considered emerging trends such as allowing users to directly contribute content, and other interactive experiences enabled by new technologies.

Collated feedback from the 2006 NDF conference questionaire is available for download in PDF format.
