Description

This webinar looked at the challenges of and solutions for presenting cultural heritage materials as Open Data. It focused on OPenn, a new website that hosts open data from cultural heritage institutions in the Philadelphia area. OPenn will present the data for a 16 institution-wide effort to digitize all the medieval manuscripts in the city with the help of a $500,000 CLIR grant. Speakers Will Noel and Doug Emery together have created several open data sets, including the Archimedes Palimpsest, the Galen Syriac Palimpsest, the Walters Art Museum’s illuminated manuscripts, and now the materials on OPenn.

Presenters from University of Pennsylvania:

  • Will Noel, Head of Reference and Instructional Services
  • Doug Emery, Librarian for Psychology and Political Science

This webinar will be of interest to the Open Data Community, and all those who are struggling with issues of data preservation and presentation in the cultural heritage sector, from small institutions to larger ones.
