The Albert-Eden Local Board is holding the Bungalow Festival this month and we’re lucky enough to be involved in a couple of the programmes. As well as 2 audio guides we’re running a couple of digitising local heritage workshops, plus setting up a DIY Book Scanner. Now, you may wonder what this has to do with mobile apps and you’d be right to think that it has absolutely nothing in common!

But we work alongside organisations of all sizes from large museums to small historical societies. And what we love doing is finding ways to make technology available to everybody, whether it’s a massive museum or an individual with a passion for exploration. So we are are running two workshops at the event (both free):

Digitising Local Heritage Workshop

When: Fri 25th Sep 11:00am – 12:00pm
Where: Point Chevalier Community Library, 1221 Great North Road, Point Chevalier, Auckland

As old technology becomes obsolete, how do we preserve our heritage for future generations? Experts from Auckland Museum and Auckland Libraries are coming along to talk about digital archiving, and how we can work together to archive and preserve local heritage.

DIY Book Scanner Workshop

When: Sat 26th Sep 11:30am – 12:30pm
Where: Point Chevalier Community Library, 1221 Great North Road, Point Chevalier, Auckland

Find out tips and techniques for scanning and digitally archiving your own photos, books and documents at this workshop. Best of all, you’re encouraged to bring your own materials along on the day.

Looking forward to seeing you there. If you can’t make the workshops we’ll be there all day Friday and Saturday with the scanner. Feel free to come chat to us!
