AMaGA WA is excited to launch The Motherboard Network for Western Australian members and friends.
The Motherboard has been established as a central hub and informal learning environment to explore digital skills, online engagement techniques, and digitisation of collections.
The Motherboard is a member of the Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA), providing access to an enormous library of online tutorials, fact sheets, guides, and videos to help enhance your digital skills and engagement. The network will deliver up-to-date information on developments in collections digitisation and collections management, issues around digital preservation, and industry specific resources and guides.
Support digital access to collections for all Australians.
Upskill and empower cultural workers to deliver that access.
To achieve its aim the Motherboard will:
- Provide a supported informal learning environment.
- Guide cultural workers through the GLAM Peak Digital Access to Collections toolkit.
- Share resources, hacks, and plain English understanding of digital "things".
- Create and participate in challenging and stimulating discussions about relevant issues.
