Openlab Workshop Unconference

December 1, 2015December 2, 2015

NEH’s Office of Digital Humanities, along with the Division of Public Programs, is pleased to be working with the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) to co-host the Openlab Workshop. To be held December 1 and 2, 2015, the two-day event will convene practitioners, scholars, and leaders from galleries, libraries, archives and museums--collectively known as GLAMs—to develop methods that enable the widespread adoption of digital technologies at GLAM institutions. The highlight of the Openlab Workshop--the Unconference and Ignites Talks--will take place on December 1, 2015 in Crystal City, VA.

Free and open to the public, the Unconference and Ignite talks will provide a forum to share insights and perspectives on the Openlab Concept and help frame the discussions of the formal planning workshop that will conclude the event on December 2, 2015.  This planning workshop will bring together participants invited from a cross-section of organizations, scholars, GLAM and humanities practitioners, and members of the public to consider the tactics, goals, and underlying vision of the Openlab Concept.

Please register for the Unconference here.

The Openlab Workshop is a collaborative effort between the NEH and CLIR, in partnership with the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), American Library Association (ALA), and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), the Digital Library Federation (DLF), and Metropolitan New York Library Council. Michael Peter Edson, digital strategist and CLIR Distinguished Fellow, will lead and facilitate the workshop.
