Collections as Data: IMPACT
July 25, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 7:30 pm
This event is free and open to the public but requires Eventbrite registration to attend in person.
LIVE STREAMING: The conference will be livestreamed on the Library of Congress YouTube channel and Facebook page. Video recordings will be posted on the Library of Congress YouTube channel after the event. Both the livestream and the recording will be closed captioned.
More relevant, more accessible, more visual, and more useful–these are some benefits of making digital collections available as data and ready for computational analysis. The Library of Congress is hosting a day-long event that will feature case-studies and impact stories of applying digital methods to analyzing and sharing collections. Presenters will share how using collections as data reactivates the holdings of libraries and other centers of history and art to make deeper connections to the communities they serve.
