We're excited to share with you that LC Labs is now live!
We’ve launched http://labs.loc.gov/
to provide a space for open experimentation
with Library digital collections. We want to highlight the visualizations, research, and innovation that machine-readable collections and data make possible and to help others explore what's possible.
On the new site you’ll find:
for Robots – a collection of machine-readable data sources and APIs for Library of Congress collections.
included a few step-throughs in Juypter notebooks (on Github) to help people get started, which we hope folks will adapt and share.
page also includes a curated list of stuff (art, tools, visualizations) people are making with the collections
– a space where we can try things out in public
Words – a crowdsourcing app featuring WWI-era newspapers
– upcoming and products from the past
– presentations, papers, videos, and stuff we’re making about what we’re doing
If you want to help spread the word (and we would love that!) please use our new twitter handle (@LC_Labs) or the hashtag #BuiltwithLC so we can track responses and feedback.
We are so excited to share this with you and our community and we look forward to working with you in the very near future!
