The Library of Congress Labs will be hosting “Connecting Collections as Data: Transforming Communities, Sharing Knowledge, and Building Networks with International GLAM Labs,” in Washington, DC, 4-6 May 2020. The two-day event aims to “connect with the active and robust digital library, digital scholarship, digital humanities, and collections as data communities active across North America to share knowledge and expand the network. The meeting will be an opportunity for participants to advance an international community of practice and to exchange strategies and methods for advancing the development of innovative services for cultural heritage audiences.”
The multi-day event will include a “Digital Transformation” workshop, themed sessions of lightning talks and panels, and Datathons. Registration is free and will open in February 2020.
There’s still a little time to respond to the call for contributions, which closes on 31 January.
