Upcoming event at the Brooklyn Public Library 

This event on Thursday, May 19th at BPL looks interesting:

From Records to Data: Seeing and Sharing Digital Cultural Heritage Collections Differently With Recollection
“In the library, archives, and museum world we have a tendency to think about things in digital collections as “objects” or “records.” In many ways we bring the strengths and limitations of thinking about this information like cards in a catalog as opposed to data in a database. This demonstration will walk through how Recollection, a free and open source web application, is being developed to help us see our data differently, and ultimately make it as easy as possible for us to share those new ways of seeing our collections with any and everyone.”
