For the fifth session of the Spirals virtual seminar series, titled 'Metadata Politics', we are excited to host Dr Rebecca Kahn whose work explores how museums and archives are using the semantic web to build integrated collections, and the ethical and technological challenges presented by current data models.
Staff and students from the Centre for Curating the Archive and the APC are assisting library staff and conservators to secure water damaged materials that were salvaged from the African Studies Library.
We just got the wonderful news that while there is a lot of water damage in the basement BC 151 is intact and safe. This astonishing treasure, the love of many of our academic lives, has survived the fire.
Following the devastating loss of the African Studies Library, the Centre for Curating the Archive is organising a special online session for Friday 23 April at 1pm in order to take stock, process and share grief around the loss of this library and its collections.
