‘Open Archives, Open Minds’: Increasing the value of data through shared collections (Software Carpentry)

On August 31st, our Cultures & Community Engagement Officer, Tyne Sumner, will be holding the next meet-up of the Digital Collections Collective:

‘Open Archives, Open Minds’: Increasing the value of data through shared collections (Software Carpentry)

Tyne will be joined by Alexis Tindall (Research Engagement Specialist, eResearch South Australia) in hosting a presentation and discussion aimed at exploring the current (and future) landscape of cross-archival data sharing.

They’d like to hear from all those interested in the research possibilities of data sharing and transfer across archives.

The meet-up will feature a demonstration and discussion of the new 360 data sharing model developed out of the Cultures & Community Project: a sustainable and scalable API standard that allows data sharing between archives, institutions and research projects (in particular, the Tasmanian Archives and Heritage Office and The Prosecution Project). The meetup will also explore the value of APIs for HASS researchers, and introduce you to other common APIs like the TROVE API, and how you can reuse the C&C API by developing your own meta data schema.

Especially welcome are new members of the flourishing Omeka community who are interested in hearing about and discussing some of these ideas.
