Pundit Workshop at the National Library of the Netherlands

On Thursday the 23d of May, the Open Knowledge Foundation organised together with Net7 and the National Library of the Netherlands a Pundit workshop aimed at digital humanities scholars and librarians. During this day, the idea of Open Humanities research was debated and Pundit was used to annotate the digitised manuscript collection of the National Library.

The audience tried Pundit doing a couple of exercises, which allowed the participants to explore all functionalities of the tool. The feedback they gave is incredibly valuable for further development of the tool and will be implemented into future version of Pundit.

All together this was a useful workshop for both the participants and the DM2E consortium as a whole and helped to further explore the potential of the web of open data and digital tools in humanities research.

With special thanks to the people at the National Library of the Netherlands for all their help to make this a successful day.
