Come join NewYorkScapes for a historical data catalog building event co-sponsored by the Digital Culture/s Colloquium on Thursday morning, December 13th, from 10-1. Brodie Cloak Maker Ad 1857We’ll be searching open-access digital libraries and data sources high and low for undiscovered data documenting the history of the city of New York, logging our findings, and building out the NewYorkScapes data catalog listing.

No prior technical skills are needed aside from a passion for the cultural record of the city and an interest in assembling data about the resources we find. Drop by for all or part of the gathering. We’ll have morning snacks to keep you going.
