Display At Your Own Risk (open source exhibition)
An experimental exhibition of digital cultural heritage – Display At Your Own Risk – is launched to mark World Intellectual Property Day 2016. The theme of the day, ‘Digital Creativity: Culture Reimagined’ (http://www.wipo.int/ip-outreach/en/ipday/), is reflected in the online exhibition organized by researchers from the University of Glasgow-based CREATe - the RCUK Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy. Andrea Wallace (University of Glasgow) and Professor Ronan Deazley (Queen’s University Belfast) have created Display At Your Own Risk (http://www.displayatyourownrisk.org) as a celebration of the extraordinary efforts of museums, galleries, and archives of international repute in making their collections available online. This project also explores the legal risks and challenges involved in making this digital cultural heritage available to all. The open source exhibition features 100 digital surrogates (a digital copy of an original cultural artefact created for preservation or archival purposes) selected from internationally-renowned institutions around the world, and invites and enables users to curate their own exhibitions as desired.
Usage and users of open data and datasets from museums and other cultural heritage institutions (survey)
The Digital Scholarship Center of the University of Oregon Libraries seeks to gauge information about the usage and users of open data and datasets from museums and other cultural heritage institutions. If you’ve worked with museum APIs, SPARQL endpoints, or Github datasets (or other art historical data), this survey is for you! The primary survey groups are those working and researching in art history. However, researchers in all disciplines are encouraged to respond. Please distribute this survey to other interested parties!
