Toronto, April 2018
The Archives Unleashed team is pleased to announce our first datathon will be hosted in partnership with the University of Toronto Libraries this spring! Save the date for 26-27 April 2018.
Watch this space for the call for participation to follow in early December.
About our Datathons
One of our key priorities is sustainability: crucial to the project’s success is leveraging an open-source ecosystem. Cognizant of funded projects that run into sustainability issues following a successful launch, we regard regional datathons staged under the Archives Unleashed banner as vital to ensuring broad community buy-in and continued involvement.
The datathon model brings together researchers, programmers, visualization experts, graphical designers, and others into one room in order to facilitate their intensive collaboration on a shared project. In our case, programmers, academics, memory institution professionals, and other librarians will gather to work on accessing web archives with our cloud interface.
Stay tuned for more information!
