OPPORTUNITY: Archives Unleashed Datathon #Washington

Archives Unleashed have released a call for applications to participate in Archives Unleashed Datathon #Washington, to be held March 21-22 at George Washington University.

The project team invites archivists, researchers (from the humanities, social sciences, and beyond), librarians, computer scientists, and web archiving enthusiasts to join us over the course of two days to collaboratively work with web collections and explore cutting-edge research tools through hands-on experience.

The Archives Unleashed Team has partnered with George Washington University Libraries to host the next Archives Unleashed datathon.

This event will bring together a small group of approximately 15-20 participants to experiment with the newest release of AUT (Archives Unleashed Toolkit) and the Archives Unleashed Cloud, and to kick-off collaboratively inspired research projects. Participants will have access to analytics software and specialists, and will be exposed to the process of working with web archive files at scale.

Applications are due December 3, 2018.
