Veröffentlicht von am Jan 12, 2016 in Event | Keine Kommentare

The OpenGLAM Working Group is once again calling on heritage institutions to provide data for the upcoming Open Cultural Data Hackathon : All Swiss heritage institutions are invited to contribute data and content for our second hackathon, which is taking place on 1/2 July 2016 on the premises of the Basel University Library.

The hackathon is an excellent means for heritage institutions to enter into dialogue with software developers, researchers, and Wikipedians, in order to put their data and digitized collections to wider use.

Datasets from Swiss institutions are listed on the event wiki.
Preparatory meetings for data providers will be held in the afternoon of 11 March 2016 in Bern, hosted by the Bern University Archive (in German) and in the afternoon of 18 March 2016, in Lausanne, hosted by the Bibliothèque universitiare de Lausanne (in French). Participation in the preparatory meetings is free; participants are however requested to sign up one week in advance by emailing beat.estermann(at)openglam.ch
