Event description
Learn how to use and upload records to Collections WA to share the stories and history of your collection.

About this Event

Collections WA is a free online, searchable platform that brings together collections from libraries, galleries, museums, archives, historical societies, cultural organisations, community groups and other collecting organisations across Western Australia.

The platform has been designed as a central database that can unite and strengthen our stories, build connections and help us to gain a better understanding of Western Australia’s intricate history.

Collecting organisations are able to add content to Collections WA and the general public can access it as a searchable database.

By the end of this workshop attendees will be able to create their organisation profile, upload records to Collections WA and have an understanding of copyright, digitisation and cataloguing.
