The NZ Open Government Data Programme has released a set of training videos. At CCANZ, we’re busy making a video of our own, about CC in Kiwi schools – more on that next month.
Latest from NZCommons
Lots to read over at NZCommons.org.nz! Learn about how to access content from Aotearoa’s rich on-screen history, the rise of open GLAM in NZ, and the importance of considering copyright while Instagramming. If there’s a burning issue you’re working on, we invite you to contribute a piece yourself.
Turnbull Library Record
The good folk at the Alexander Turnbull Library are looking to digitise issues of the Turnbull Library Record since the 1940s and publish them online under a CC licence – but first they need to track down all the rights holders. Have you ever contributed? Do you know someone who has? Please email email@example.com.
Auckland Museum is looking for a Rights Specialist
Great opportunity for someone in the GLAM sector: the Auckland War Memorial Museum Tamaki Paenga Hira is recruiting for a Rights Specialist, and they’ve asked us to spread the word among the Open GLAM community. Applications close 12 July.
We’re running after-school ‘clinics’ via Google Hangouts for anyone who wants to stop by with a question about Creative Commons in NZ schools. Book your place now for a spot in July, August or September.
Adopt a NZ school for CCANZ
Our goal is for all Kiwi schools to be CC schools – but there are over 2,500 schools in Aotearoa, so we need your help! Would you be willing to adopt your local school, and talk to them about Creative Commons? If so, please get in touch.
