Workshop “Opening up the collection – reuse and publishing” – Pre-Conference 
Day, 07. June 2015 of the ELPUB Conference 2016 from June 7 to 9 in Göttingen 

The LIBER-Working-Group „Digital Collections“[1], the DFG-Project “Future 
Publications in the Humanities”[2] and DARIAH-EU[3] are running the above 
workshop immediately prior to the ELPUB Conference 2016[4].

Collections remain important sources for scientific interaction, whether users 
come from Digital Humanities based in academia or beyond the campus, are 
interested in knowledge extraction such as text and data mining or research 
touching on history or cultural heritage questions. Such collections differ in 
size or depth and are usually curated in libraries, archives or museums. The 
objects come from the realm of cultural heritage (images, texts, artefacts 
etc.) as well as cultural records such as mass media objects or scholarly 
publications. More and more of these collections are being opened up digitally, 
either by digital indexing, through digitisation, or since the objects and 
records are themselves born-digital. Opening up these collections specifically 
for scientific use allows new forms of dissemination and publishing in new 
digital contexts. To enable these processes and thus realising the full 
potential of collections we see five fields that are ripe for for further 

(a) standards, object definition and data modelling,

(b) ownership and responsibility over time,

(c) presentation and access,

(d) enriching collections with user-generated content and finally

(e) publishing formats and publishing entities.

The workshop will be run using an interactive format bringing together 
collection and archive experts, citizen scientists, Digital Humanities 
practitioners, researchers and publishers, to discuss the organisational, 
socio-economic and technical aspects of new reuse scenarios for the 
dissemination and publication of complex digital collections.

We cordially invite you to contribute to the workshop with talks of 10-15 
minutes addressing the five aspects above, either as state-of-the-art talks, or 
with best practice examples, (difficult) lessons learned and processes you aim 
to start in your institution. Contributions will be reviewed and published Open
