[OpenGLAM] Reminder: Open Collections Sprint - 23 April
lieke.ploeger at okfn.org
Wed Apr 22 11:27:00 UTC 2015
This is a reminder for our OpenGLAM Open Collections sprint, that will be
happening tomorrow evening from *18.30 - 20.30 CEST* (please note that
we've moved it to half an hour earlier).
During the sprint, we'll be updating the open collections (
http://openglam.org/open-collections/) currently in the system to make sure
they are up to date (for metadata, collection image, tags).
If you want to participate in the sprint, please fill out this form
we can register you as a user in the system.
Also, if you know of any open collections (digital scans or photos that can
be freely used without any restrictions) out there, please recommend them
by clicking 'Contribute an item' - any collection that is added before
Thursday will of course be updated rightaway during the sprint as well.
Many thanks and best,
