Roundup for 11/3

Posted on November 3, 2008 under libraries, minnesota, museums, public history

I’ve scoured the corners of the internet to bring you this link roundup!

If you live in Minnesota, remember to vote yes for the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment.  This is PH’s official endorsement for the election season.

Congrats to the Brooklyn Museum for winning a Forrester Groundswell award!

A new Michigan-based booklet on rehabbing historic properties.

Will your data survive the digital dark age?

Todd has been posting about Detroit bicycling history.

LibraryThing is organizing a “cataloguing flash mob” at a church in the Boston area with historical book collections.  What a great idea!  It’s like a metadata barn raising.

Fascinating show on collections and collectors at a museum in Poland.

And, from the How Did I Beat Rob McDougall to Posting This department:  an amazing online exhibit of spirit photography!

  1. Re the digital dark age – a week or two ago I watched an 8″ floppy disc being read and copied to a CD. I know people who maintain fleets of obsolete computers and people who specialize in writing simulators. If you are smart enough to keep refreshing your media, there will be people out there who can read it – and who will be getting rich doing it.

  2. I suppose you beat me because (until yesterday) I hadn’t posted in about 3 months. But that spirit photography exhibit is great – thanks for the tip!
