Open licenses, open content, open data: tools for developing digital humanities
Wikimedia Estonia, Estonian Society of Digital Humanities, CAA Estonia and other partners are organising a 2-day conference and 1-day graduate school seminar with the title „Open licenses, 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. A special focus is on the GLAMwiki collaboration whereby more and more content finds its way to different wiki-projects (mainly Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata).
