ODH program officer Perry Collins will participate in a panel presentation at the Museum of the City of New York (MCNY) on Tuesday, October 2nd, at 6pm. The event, Humanities and Technology Unite!, highlights a project funded through ODH's Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants program that brought together MCNY with the technology company Tagasauris to enrich description of the Museum's vast digitized collections of photographs. Panel participants come from a variety of backgrounds and will offer thoughts on new opportunities for cultural heritage organizations interested in leveraging technology to improve access to collections, particularly through crowdsourcing and Semantic Web technologies.
