Hackday zu Open Bibliographic Data in Berlin

Am 7. Oktober 2010 findet an der Freien Universität Berlin ein internationaler Workshop / Hackday zu Open Bibliographic Data statt. Aus einer Mail von Organisator Jonathan Gray in der Liste Open Bibliography:

This will be very much focused on discussion and ‘getting things done’
— rather than presentations per se. Key thing is to get interested folks together! Some ideas for things I’d be keen to see:

* discussion / drafting for a ‘manual’ for opening up bibliographic data
* discussion of the role of bibliographic data to help determine which works are in the public domain in which countries (to build services like publicdomainworks.net)
* discussion / hacking on key technologies — e.g. versioning for data, RDF, data stores, user services, …
* future of open bibliographic data — what services people would like to see (e.g. using data as backbone for new kinds of research tools in digital humanities, representing data on maps/timelines)
* open bibliographic data / LOD
* add things here! 😉

Der Hackday findet im Rahmenprogramm der 3rd Free Culture Research Conference am 8. und 9. Oktober 2010 statt. Wer teilnehmen möchte, sollte sich eindoodlen.

Es mag Zufall sein, dass dieser Hackday in Deutschland stattfindet. Allerdings darf man attestieren, das hierzulande in Sachen Open Bibliographic Data vor allem durch das HBZ (und zumindest in meiner Wahrnehmung insbesondere Adrian Pohl) eine Menge passiert.
