Are you a library hack too? Perhaps you are and don’t know it.
There are ‘library hacks’ who are still discovering the power of good
research and resources, and then there are ‘library hacks’ who are
using these to take data, images, maps, or objects in exciting new
directions. This presentation will touch on both of these definitions.
There are many tools available through the web to help create and
visualise information and libraries are great untapped repositories
of it, whereby many are using library data to create new content.
The Libraryhack competition run by the National State Libraries of
Australasia early in 2011 brought many great ideas and creations to
the surface. It also provided an opportunity to explore how mash-ups
and data visualisations make content powerful and rich. Hear how
library hacking might just be what your collections need to generate
a new wave of community engagement.
