Open Data & GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums)
A seminar exploring the benefits and challenges of making the collection of GLAM data more widely available through three case studies.
In the world of Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAM), data is critical to the management and accessibility of collections. Until recently, this data was often inaccessible.
In this seminar, we will explore the benefits and challenges of making this collection more widely available through three case studies.
- HuNI (Humanities Networked Infrastructure) combines data from many Australian cultural websites into the biggest humanities and creative arts database ever assembled in Australia.
- Trove connects communities and researchers with open collection data that can be reused, enhanced and analysed as seen through two recent projects.
- Macquarie University holds significant cultural collections that are used for teaching and research. They currently use EMu Collections Management software and are exploring the issues involved in preparing their data to go online.
