#GLAMlabs! Labbers and scholars, practitioners and anyone else interested in innovating with the use of digital content in galleries, libraries, archives and museums! It is 10 AM in Doha Qatar, and this is the time when the event on launching the Open the Glam Lab book is starting at Qatar University Library. This event is part of the International Open Access Week events this year in Qatar, having in mind that labs are great enablers of open humanities scholarships.
If you are not in Doha, now you can access the book in open access and via different platforms:
It is on the Qspace, the open access repository of Qatar University and also can be accessed via the website of the GLAM community! Enjoy, read, and if the book helps you to open or expand a lab, we would love to hear from you! We also would love to know what can be improved in the book because from the very beginning, our idea was that it will be a living book developing with the growth of our knowledge and ideas!
Here is the list of speakers for the launch.
10:00-10:10 Ms. Samia Hassan Al-Shiba, Library Director
10:10-10:20 Dr. Talal Al-Emadi, QU Press Director
10:20-10:50 Mrs. Aisha Al-Abdulla, Head of Digital Repository & Archives at QU Library
Dr. Milena Dobreva, Associate Professor of Library and Information Studies at UCL Qatar
Towards opening a GLAM Lab, what next?
1050- 11:10 Dr. Alwaleed K. Alkhaja, Qatar National Library: Qatar National Library Open Access Fund
