An early Open Data initiative, Libraryhack was a mashup and apps competition with great prizes designed to encourage the creative and innovative re-use of library data and digital content.
The 2011 Library competition was run by the National, State and Territory libraries of Australia and New Zealand. (NSLA)
For the Libraryhack competition, participating libraries made some of their collections and data freely available for anyone to mash up, remix and repurpose and create something new!
There were 4 competition categories to encourage people from a range of communities (developers, artists, digital content creators, historians, researchers and members of the public) to participate.
The Libraryhack website has since be decomissioned but is still available to be view through 'Pandora - Australia's web archive'.
