Big data: Opportunities and barriers across the cultural heritage sectors.

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

    Abstract

    This paper considers the explosion of data occurring across all sectors of society; from that generated by individual and government activities, by scientists and other researchers, and through major digitisation projects being undertaken by cultural institutions world-wide. Given the overarching term of 'big data', these large datasets require a high level of expertise and knowledge in their management to ensure accessibility and preservation over the long term. This raises the issue of education in managing 'big data' and how this can be undertaken given limited resources but a growing need. Cooperation across sectors is considered and formal education programs reviewed in order to better understand the current situation and how it may evolve in the future.
