NYPL/Readium Open Book Hack Day - Jan 14

December 22, 2014
NYPL Labs and Readium Foundation are pleased to bring "Volume 2" of our Open Book Hack Day to the flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman building of the New York Public Library on Wednesday, January 14.  During this day-long event, we’ll push the limits of what’s possible with ebooks and open texts, liberate public domain documents onto the open web, play with tools to make it easier for authors to write and publish in creative ways, and improve the experience of finding amazing books in the public domain.
Register now to reserve your spot and help shape the event!
 
We’ll be exploring such questions and projects as:
  • What work can be done to help people find the best public domain content (metadata enrichment, cover art, recommendation tools etc.)?
  • How can we liberate and integrate other public domain content, like audio books, comics, and government documents into e-readers?
  • How can we make it easier to get open-access e-books and facilitate open e-book access/distribution for other libraries, startups, and publishers alike?
Or: come to work on anything else related to the public domain, e-books, or digital reading. (And bring a friend.)
