The November 14th Collections as Data Reading Group meeting will be about "Identifying our users: Who will use the data?" Moderated by Jim Casey and Nick Budak.
Please take a look at the Collections as Data Personas (v2) online here: https://collectionsasdata.github.io/personas/
Then, browse the list of 50 things you can do to get started in Collections as Data: https://collectionsasdata.github.io/fiftythings/. We really like the randomizer. From the list, please come prepared to share one thing you think could be a useful first step in your work.
Other motivating questions for discussion:
- Who do we imagine as users of PUL collections as data?
- What are examples of library data being used for computational purposes? Success or failures stories.
- How do we make collections as data accessible to a variety of users, including non-technical users?
- How do we use data & digital tools to promote learning, engagement and innovation? How do we promote/encourage the use of PUL collections as data?
- How do we train Princeton researchers to use collections as data?
Light lunch will be served
