Looks great!

Unfortunately, I'm still having trouble logging in to OKFN? I think I made
a request a while back to add York Museums Trust
<http://www.yorkmuseumstrust.org.uk/collections/> to the list.

Really excited to see where this goes!

> Dear all,
> Work has progressed on the new Open Collections page on the OpenGLAM
> website, and we are excited to let you know that the improved version is
> now live at http://openglam.org/open-collections/. The page collates
> details of open collections and lists of of open collections in a visually
> attractive way. It is intended for anyone interested in finding open
> content and delivered through Omeka software, with curation elements and
> opportunities to add comments and tags to all content.
> Before we share this news more widely, we want to make sure the content of
> the Open Collections is of good quality, which is why we need your help!
>    - We would love to add new open collections to our current overview,
>    so 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'.
>    - We are organising a *community sprint* to make sure that the
>    information for each of the collections is completely up to date. This
>    sprint will take place on *Thursday 23 April, from 19.00 - 21.00 CET* -
>    you are all warmly invited to join! During the sprint, each
>    participant will be allocated several open collections to check on:
>    - Metadata: is everything correct?
>       - Does the collection have a good display image?
>       - Which tags can be added to the collection (from this set of tags
>       <https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/spreadsheets/d/1qq26YcR7E-qsYJTPzJ2bY4uMFSnX353QpUqg7_q_HBI>
>       )?
>       - Could the collection be awarded the OpenGLAM badge of approval?
>       (see http://omeka.okfn.org/exhibits/show/open/badge)
> If you want to participate in the sprint, please fill out this form
> <https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/forms/d/1dsWR56hC2cybJEIp5Cx590xI_KqoG_zWCI4MiqBOLGI/viewform> so
> we can register you as a user in the system. We'll share some more detailed
> instructions beforehand of course as well.
> Many thanks for your help and feedback, and looking forward to having a
> great Open Collections overview ready to be widely published soon!
