-Propose smaller events?

-SD – working on FMP database for object-related research.
-LWR – Open Art – catalog raissoné software. Working with UC Berkeley. Is IIIF compatible. Added modules to their Drupal.
-CMS solutions: Drupal versus FMP, curious to see how FMP could be used as a CMS.
-FS – In general collection data is not made public, but when it is it is usually large institutions and only their cleanest data.
-American Art Project – Data available at github.
-SD – people don’t know where to find the data.
-Open databases and then search engines can find records, might increase use.
-SD – If there was an annotated authoritative list of digital humanities projects that would serve a portal via CAA.
-FS – Is CAA the best place to host this? Perhaps not. What we want is a neutral repository, so that it is not beholden to any particular institution.
-OSCI – online scholarly catalog initiative – The Getty
-SD – Machine learning conference – Rick Johnson’s work – high resolution scans of materials to match work.
-SD – Ares – Frick and others working on an image workspace, high demand.
-FS will reach out to Sree Sreenivasan to see if he is interested in working with NYC DAH.
-DAH Website Discussion:
-Weekly email updates could use better formatting.
-JV made a NYCDAH twitter account.
-September event next year.
-We have time to poll people from last time.
-Reach out to schools, grad students would likely be very interested.
-Poster sessions, workshops.
-Open call for planning in March.
-Early actionable items: post to calendar, call for people to participate in digital humanities week. Post all notes to NYC DAH website.
-Put this out there on list servs, social media, twitter.
