The NFSA has embraced digital – building collections and enabling access to them for use and re-use and integrating digital experiences in our events and exhibitions. Digital Transformation at the NFSA is not so much about transformation from analogue to digital; rather, it is about evolution from a first generation, hybrid analogue/digital film and sound archive to an archive that is digital by design. ‘Analogue’ and ‘digital’ are not mutually exclusive or opposing forces. The NFSA’s physical collections, the onsite and online exhibitions, programs, events and even the building are an integral part of the digitalisation of the NFSA.
An archive that is ‘digital by design’ means that our intention is to think, act and be digital first – for digital experiences to be intrinsically part of the life of the archive and the people who learn, experience and create with us.
In this presentation, I will highlight the principles of becoming an archive that is digital by design and the steps that the NFSA is taking in order to make Digital Transformation happen. Attention in this presentation also for the serious focus on People and Culture and the structure of the organisation. One of the focus points will also be how to collaborate: Digital Transformation should happen through close collaboration with partner institutions and other umbrella organisations, e.g. when it comes to the preservation of new media and multimedia.
