Merisa Martinez

In this research seminar, I will discuss plans for a thesis by publication. Topics of my proposed articles will cover broad themes, including the relationship between Library and Information Science and the Digital Humanities; issues of copyright and licensing digital data in the EU and the UK; facilitating the reuse of digital data from digital projects; rethinking modes of dissemination of digital data to diverse user groups; and mapping the political landscape of cultural heritage digitization in Scandinavia.
