Brazilian cultural ministry interested in JISC Community Collections programme
Last week some of the JISC Programme Managers met with representatives from the Brazilian Ministry of Culture, Digital Culture department.
Our Brazilian colleagues talked us through their ambitious plans for setting up, among other things, a National System of Cultural Information and Indicators (SNIIC), a new platform that will push the open data agenda and citizen participation activity in a range of areas from culture to political life (a detailed blog post on this meeting is here).
As such they were interested to know more about JISC’s work in the areas of resource discovery, identity management and community collections.
The slides below provided a high level overview for discussion on the challenges of setting up community collections and crowdsourcing initiatives, based mainly on the experience of the JISC Community Collections programmes:
