Across the collecting practices of galleries, social history and science museums, archives and libraries, the increasing prevalence of time-based and born-digital media acquired, lent, borrowed and exhibited presents significant challenges for registrars. As we respond to these challenges, both tangible and intangible, established registration methods are being tested and often falling short.

Caring for these collections is broadly acknowledged as a cross-disciplinary effort involving registrars, curators, conservators, technicians, artists and technology specialists, including IT and audiovisual experts. Duration and Dimension brings together speakers to explore diverse matters inherent to time-based and born-digital media, presenting practical solutions registrars, their colleagues and experts working in other industries apply to the management of these collections long-term.

 Consisting of two conference days and an opening night reception, Duration and Dimension provides a great opportunity for attendees to get to grips with this difficult topic and engage with their peers.
