On April 29, 2014, I gave a presentation at the second international Maria Szymanowska et son temps Symposium in Paris, France. The event was sponsored by the Polish Academy of Sciences and organized by Elżbieta Zapolska-Chapelle (Board President) of the Société Maria Szymanowska. My presentation was entitled: “Szymanowska Scholarship: Ideas for Access and Discovery through Collaborative Efforts,” and was meant to present examples of how libraries, archives, and other cultural heritage institutions have been working to make their collections accessible, discoverable, and open to their users. I briefly explored ways in which the Szymanowska scholarly community could think about future research, which would make use of open data, linked open data, and tools associated with digital scholarship. My slides can be viewed within this post or directly via Google Drive.
