The Library’s LC Labs is hosting a weeklong “flashbuild” hack-a-thon July 9-12 to create new digital tools and visualizations for research and exploration of baseball-related collections as data with partners from JSTOR Labs, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and Wikimedia. On Friday, July 13, each of the partner organizations will present on the prototype tools and visualizations they developed during the week. The event will close with a discussion about the role of baseball in American life. During the daylong public program, the Library’s National Digital Initiatives team also will present on other collections as data topics. 

Follow the conversation on Twitter at @librarycongress, @Events_LOC and #BaseballAmericana.
