Open Heritage Data: An introduction to research, publishing and programming with open data in the heritage sector has been written for practitioners, researchers and students working in the GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) sector who do not have a computer science background, but who want to work more confidently with heritage data. It combines current research in open data with the authors’ extensive experience in coding and teaching coding to provide a step-by-step guide to working actively with the increasing amounts of data in their charge.

This book demonstrates how heritage institutions can work with community-based heritage groups to build broader, more inclusive and culturally relevant collections.
Participatory Heritage uses a selection of international case studies to explore issues and demonstrates that in order for personal and community-based documentation and artefacts to be preserved and included in social and collective histories, individuals and community groups need the technical and knowledge infrastructures of support that formal cultural institutions can provide. In other words, both groups need each other.
