The University of Colorado’s Museum of Natural History, University Libraries, and Research Computing are hosting a “Curating the Campus” speaker series, exploring how digital cultural heritage collections can contribute to campus research and teaching missions as well as engagement of broad audiences. Part Three includes, “Everything is Data Except When It’s Not: AI, the Library, and Digital Research Practices” with Catherine Nicole Coleman from Stanford Libraries. From the announcement:
Even if your own research is not data-driven, the move on behalf of both libraries and researchers to think of collections as data opens up new possibilities and requires new critical practices. In this talk Nicole will share some examples from the Stanford Libraries and from the larger AI4LAM community of what it means to think of collections as data and the implications for future research. Nicole will speak for the first hour. You are invited to stay on the call for the 2nd hour for an informal Q&A session.
Nicole is the Digital Research Architect at Stanford University Libraries, working within the Digital Library Systems and Services group. With Dan Edelstein, she co-directs Humanities + Design, a research lab based at the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA).
The event takes place via Zoom on 28 April 2021 at 10am Mountain Time (4pm UTC), is free, and open to all. Registration is required.
