Now let's see: 1st there is a documentation as docx (thanks), then a folder of sql tables (interesting) and one with zipped csv files. Let's pick objects.csv and see what's inside...
Ah, there are 28 columns (properties) with 135,715 rows (objects). Great!
Creation date is split in begin and end date, the oldest -490, i.e. b.c. Median: 1933, Mean: 1868.
"accessioned" is always "1".

❔ Partie 1 - Méthode - Quel périmètre d'analyse ?

Je me suis intéressé aux 100 #musées les plus fréquentés en France, en 2018. En repartant des données en #opendata du @MinistereCC.

Si on soustrait quelques doublons de sites, on obtient 89 sites web étudiés.

Hi! I’m the Professor of Digital Cultural Heritage at @edinburghuni, & today I’ll be talking about the digitisation of Gallery, Library, Archive & Museum (GLAM) material in the context of #Covid19, & how that intersects with #digitalhumanities research interests #DHgoesVIRAL 1/20
First, I want to acknowledge how stressful a time this is for all of us. Also the work that went into the sudden shut down of our memory institutions. More than ever, we are all dependent on digital, & the digitisation of all of society #DHgoesVIRAL 2/20
We’re dependent on cultural content for our wellbeing, as well as our work. It has been wonderful to see the GLAM sector rise to the challenge of content creation, & dissemination, communicating with a vastly increased digital audience #DHgoesVIRAL 3/20

(1/21) Do you work with digitized manuscripts? I have 350 pages to help you out with that! "Among Digitized Manuscripts", published with @BrillPublishing. It’s out now! Download the book in open access here… More information:
(2/21) Manuscripts have been digitized in large numbers. Technology has become easy to learn. It is time to capitalize on these opportunities and accept ‘digital manuscript studies’ as a normal, yes necessary, part of our work. This book is a great start for that!
(3/21) It introduces a conceptual and practical toolbox for working with digitized manuscripts, starting with establishing a vocabulary to talk about the (quality of the) digital materiality of them and ending with explaining Python and OpenCV to do automated image analysis.

Digital cultural heritage is not digital resources imbued with cultural value, but networked access to usable digital representations of tangible, intangible and natural cultural heritage. Digital is a means, not an end.
The intrinsic value of the representation is from the heritage, with a limiting factor of its fitness-for-purpose or usability. The actual value is only realized through interaction, and resulting experiential impact.
The impact comes both from the digital and the heritage resource. Digital is the epitome of economic non-rivalrous good, whereas heritage is the opposite as experiential scarcity adds emotional attachment and value.
