This looks great Sarah! :-)

One small question about the longer term - while this is a great way
to start compiling case studies now, in the longer term might it make
sense to have these listed on the OpenGLAM.org site with tags +
faceted browsing? Then people could browse for projects by region, by
function (e.g. mapping, bibliography, timelines, etc), domain
(history, art), etc. If people can really use this as a way to
serendipitously find a bunch of things of type X, then I think it will
be even more valuable.

E.g. on PublicData.eu we have format and countries:

While it would be fairly trivial to pull out material from the Tumblr
into some other system, the only thing that we'd probably want to
think about a bit is to start using tags a bit more extensively than
we are at the moment.

What do people think?
