The purpose of this session is to spark conversations about how library, archive and museum collections and data can optimally support data-driven journalism. Session organizers aim to discuss experiences attendees have had working with cultural heritage data. Based on that conversation, we hope to discuss features and capabilities that libraries, archives and museums might develop to encourage computational use of cultural heritage data.
