Next Tuesday, July 25th, the National Digital Initiatives group at the Library of Congress will present the second Collections as Data symposium. This wide-ranging day looks at the way data can be extracted from – and made useful to – digital humanities collections. I went last year, and found the entire day fascinating.
The symposium is free but does require registration if you want to attend in person. It’s also available in an online stream for those who can’t attend in person. Copy from their website:
More relevant, more accessible, more visual, and more useful–these are some benefits of making digital collections available as data and ready for computational analysis. The Library of Congress is hosting a day-long event that will feature case-studies and impact stories of applying digital methods to analyzing and sharing collections. Presenters will share how using collections as data reactivates the holdings of libraries and other centers of history and art to make deeper connections to the communities they serve.
