Unlocking Sources – The First World War online & Europeana
On 30-31 January 2014, the international conference “Unlocking Sources – The First World War online & Europeana” will discuss the new digital offerings around the First World War and Europeana as well as the mediation of history online in 2014. The three EU-funded projects “EFG1914″, “Europeana Collections 1914-1918″ and “Europeana 1914-1918” have digitized hundreds of thousands of sources from archives, museums, libraries, and individuals. These will, for the first time ever, be made available to the general public for free via the virtual library Europeana. The two-day conference will be jointly organised by the project co-ordinating institutions Berlin State Library, the Department of History at the Humboldt University in Berlin, the Deutsches Filminstitut – DIF, and the Europeana Foundation. It will address interested scientific audiences and the public.
Deadline for submission of papers is 15 July 2013.
