The inaugural Making meaning: Collections as data symposium took place at State Library of Queensland on Friday 6 March 2020. It was a day for digital innovators, featuring influential and challenging speakers from the research, government, digital humanities and GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) sectors. Coinciding with Open Data Day 2020, the symposium aimed to raise awareness of the potential of collections as data and build a community of practice in Australia. Explore the program below.
