Building the BC Digital Library: From idea to action through radical collaboration
Surfacing collections across Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums (GLAM) allows us to tell stories and share otherwise obscure specimens, artifacts, or records. A BC Digital Library has transformative potential to show complexity of people and places, amplify local collections, and to make our past available to help shape social discourse. But it must be built, and maintained into the future. A growing group of GLAM institutions are finding ways to get it done through radical collaboration. Join panelists for tales of prototyping across sectors, looming questions of metadata, and results of a pulse check on how the GLAM sector can collaborate.
