The Haute école de gestion de Genève (HEG-GE) will soon release its ARK allocation service, called ARKetype, which was created with the help of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) within the context of the INCIPIT project financed by swissuniversities.
On Wednesday, January 27th between 10:30 am and 12:00 noon Central European Time, we will introduce the service with a free online event called Ask Me Anything. Presentations will be in English and the Q&A (Question and Answer) session will be in French, German and English.
You can register for this event by visiting the following link: https://app.hesge.ch/enquetes/index.php/447277/lang-en (deadline: Tuesday, January 26th, 4pm).
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the California Digital Library as well as the ARK Alliance for their help and support during the INCIPIT project and the establishment of ARKetype.
Originally trained as a bookseller, I then studied Information Science in Geneva (BSc and MSc) and am now a PhD Candidate in Digital Humanities at the University of Basel. I work as well for DaSCH, the Swiss National Data & Service Center for the Humanities.
I am particularly interested in ways of improving the digital preservation, dissemination and interoperability of cultural heritage objects and their associated metadata through the application of Linked Open Data.
