Hello there! Thanks to @kfitz I got again access to my account! Please boost this message as I lost the data (and all the people who starting following me) over the past five days because of the server glitch (and sorry to the people I couldn't follow back, I will find you) :blobcatgoogly:

So I won't do another proper #introduction (have a look at my pinned toot) but some information here: I am a #PhD Candidate in #DigitalHumanities at the University of Basel, doing a thesis on Linked Open Usable Data (#LOUD) such as #LinkedArt, an application profile of CIDOC-CRM and #IIIF. @dh

And speaking of @iiif, I created a couple of days ago an International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) list on Mastodon --> where you can download a CSV file, use the form ( if you want to be on that list.

Really great that the technical team on the project have created a dataset of metadata about archived websites in the UK Web Archive 'Talking About Health' collection in JSON format that can be used for computational access purposes! Collection:

I mentioned the great work being done by the Digital Humanities Climate Coalition, & their "Greening the Digital Humanities Resource Hub" yesterday in my seminar at Stirling Uni, so here is a link for anyone interested in assessing and reducing the climate impact of their use of digital tech in the #DigitalHumanities #Archaeology #Digital #ClimateAction

New blog post by my colleague--and Software Sustainability Institute Fellow--Leontien Talboom about the access guide she wrote for the Digital Preservation Coalition as well as the panel on access to digital materials that took place during iPres 2022! Blog post: Guide:

We'd love to non-US/CAN applications - if you can help share it would be most appreciated!

Today we are launching Ireland's National Action Plan for Open Research 2022-2030, built by the #NORF with input from across the country. This is a big day!

See the plan here:

Cambridge University Libraries has launched a podcast, and it's first episode is about the mystery of the missing--and returned!-- notebooks. Really interesting story, as well as a great example about how to communicate about missing collection items to researcher and public audiences.

I'm glad to see so much renewed discussion about federated services, civic tech, public digital infrastructures, community networks - which prompts me to revisit and recommend this *wonderful* piece Greta Byrum wrote for the "Digital Frictions" series I edited back in 2019:

Anyone aware of a decent scholarly overview/consideration of the legality of emulators? (under U.S. law especially but will take whatever)

Like on the level of EFF, Harvard CyberLaw or the like commenting on this, not video game emulation sites summarizing common understanding/interpretation of Sony v. Connectix

I'm very pleased to see 100% remote eligible jobs becoming more common at NARA. Here's a grade 14, remote, bargaining unit role as Preservation Program Officer: (note the pay varies based on geographic location, pay tables here

At an event today titled Open Access: Where Next? Got me wondering: does the discipline have an journal?

Following the publication of CUL policy for the research outputs of the University of Cambridge (, there's now a new webpage with a summary of this policy and workflow diagram:

Still two weeks before sifting of applications for the #job of Director of Special Collections at UChicago Library: We are starting an ambitious program of renewal - come be part of it. Non-US applicants: I am happy to share my experience of relocating if helpful.

Really great to collaborate with the Open Research Systems and Office of Scholarly Comms teams at Cambridge University Libraries on a policy for the research outputs of Cambirdge University! Now live:

Lots to digest and follow up on from the event my colleague Leontien Talboom and I ran yesterday. It was great that peers from a range of disciplines could join!
