Dear Colleagues, 

The Santa Barbara Statement on Collections as Data was initiated during an Institute of Museum and Library Services national forum at the University of California Santa Barbara (March 1-3 2017). We invite librarians, archivists, museum professionals, researchers, journalists, artists, educators, and data producers to partner on further development of the statement. 

Learn more about the statement and how to contribute here:
