OPPORTUNITY: Researcher, Computing Cultural Heritage Collections Project

The Library of Congress is looking for a researcher to help the Library “build a rich understanding of the uses for large scale computational access to library collections, including images, audio, video, web, text, and structured metadata” as part of the Computing Cultural Heritage Collections project in LC Labs.

Supported by the Andres W. Mellon Foundation, Computing Cultural Heritage Collections (CCHC) is intended to assist the Library in utilizing a cloud-based environment to make its collection accessible.

Researchers with “scholarly, practical, or technical questions that require computational uses of library collections” are encouraged to apply.

Additional information can be found in their Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Interested Researchers.
