Home Libraries are the New Black 
March 3 @ 14:00 - 16:00 EET
Salon Conversation: Open Bibliographology. Online radio & Virtual gathering (registation needed for Jitsi link) introducing and discussing open bibliographic work, software, practices of documenting books in open-culture systems, in English language. It takes place as a fringe event of the International Open Data Days.
What happens when you make public your private library collection, sharing a lifetime of personal book collection in a public space? How can people develop their own collective book library resource, complementing & contrasting, respecting differences as a whole? How to nurture and expand a socialised library? How can home libraries complement municipal libraries and support cultural events? In this case, Andrew Gryf Paterson’s example will be a way to reach out to the local community: Seeking common interests, common (or same) books in Swedish or Finnish that exist, reading aloud sessions, online radio broadcasts, and open bibliographic work. There will also be ongoing vermicomposting with donated old books.
As part of 9.2.–10.3.2024 process in Salon at Kulturhus Björkboda, Kimitoön/Kemiönsaari, SW Finland. More info: https://kubu.fi/project/home-libraries-are-the-new-black/
