“Open licences, open content, open data: tools for developing digital humanities”, November 1 – 3, 2017, Estonian National Museum

Wikimedia Estonia, the Estonian Digital Humanities Society, CAA Estonia, Estonian Literary Museum and other partners are organising a 2-day conference and 1-day graduate school seminar with the title „Open licences, open content, open data: tools for developing digital humanities” on November 1 – 3, 2017 in Tartu, Estonia. The event takes place under the auspices of the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU.

The main goal of the conference is to inspire and educate about the benefits of opening up the content in public collections and to build bridges between the more academic digital humanities community and the staff of memory institutions (archives, museums, libraries, galleries). A special focus is on the GLAMwiki collaboration whereby more and more content finds its way to different wiki-projects (mainly Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, Wikipedia).
