Funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the 3-year Collections as Data: Part to Whole project culminates in an international summit: Collections as Data: State of the Field and Future Directions.
The Collections as Data: Part to Whole team has shared a Call for Participation for this collaborative international working event, which will be held in Vancouver, Canada from April 25-26, 2023.
From the Call:
The scale of collections as data work – both explicitly identified and complementary in nature – is international. In the United States, successive efforts manifest in projects like Always Already Computational: Collections as Data, Collections as Data: Part to Whole, and the Library of Congress’ Computing Cultural Heritage in the Cloud have seeded an increasingly robust community. Collections as Data: Part to Whole sparked no less than 12 institutional experiments in collections as data implementation, spanning large public and private universities, regional universities, a historical society, an art museum, and a statewide digital library.
Call for Participation
The time has come for the community to develop paths forward together. In order to maximize a diverse representation of perspectives at Collections as Data: State of Field and Future Directions, we are opening a call for participation for individuals to attend and contribute to the event. Individuals at all levels of experience – from all regions of the world – are highly encouraged to apply. Travel, lodging, and subsistence costs for selected attendees will be supported by the Mellon Foundation.
