“Engaged Scholarship and Knowledge Communities in the Age of the Web”

Engaged Scholarship and Knowledge Communities in the Age of the Web

Jon Voss
Thursday, November 5, 2015
4:00pm in Sewall Hall 309, Rice University
(A reception will follow; no need to RSVP)
See attached flyer for parking information, a campus map, and more information on the event.

“The World Wide Web has changed how we work together in the world, and our social
institutions are still in the early days of transition. Through a project like Historypin and several
others, we explore what the future may hold for memory institutions in the Age of the Web.”

Jon Voss is a leader in the Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums (LODLAM) community and is Strategic Partnerships Director at ShiftDesign, where he helps lead Historypin (a nifty platform for locating historical images on an interactive map). On top of that, he’s an engaging, animated speaker, and he’ll be speaking on a topic directly relevant to libraries / archives.

ALSO! In addition to the talk, you’re also invited to attend a hands-on workshop on Historypin on Friday, 11/6 from 12-1:30ish in the Fondren Library Collaboration Space, at Rice University.

Please let Dr. Lisa Spiro know if you plan to come to the workshop by emailing her at lspiro@rice.edu.
