Launch of "Open GLAM"
Wed 27 October 2021, 1pm - 1.45pm AEDT
In this time of lockdowns, opening up collections online is particularly vital. Open GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) provides this access, displaying in digital space the archives and other special collections that are so fundamental to Humanities research.
You are invited to join the Library and partners for a preview of our brand-new Open GLAM platform, sharing previously unpublished photography from the Dardalis Archives of Hellenic Diaspora and recent exhibitions from the La Trobe Art Institute. Connect with stories of migration, memory and home, and explore how we can use this medium to overcome remoteness.
Panelists: Emmanouela Giannoulidou (Dardalis Archives of Hellenic Diaspora) and Karen Annett-Thomas (La Trobe Art Institute)
Chair: Helen Slaney (Library Scholarly Publishing)
