#TacomaPublicDomain: Mining DPLA (and Other Amazing Online Collections) for Local History
#TacomaPublicDomain: Mining DPLA (and Other Amazing Online Collections) for Local History
WhenMonday, Oct. 22, 2018, 12:30 – 1:20 p.m.
Description

Beginning this summer, librarian Justin Wadland began a modest project: once a week, he posts at least one public domain primary source to Twitter under the hashtag #TacomaPublicDomain. In this talk offered as part of Open Access Week and the IAS Seminar: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Local History taught by Kim Davenport, Wadland will give quick introduction to the public domain and share some of the tools, like the Digital Public Library of America, where public domain and openly-available sources can be found. Also, he will introduce a few tools that can be used to analyze and present these materials and invite you to contribute your findings.
