- What work can be done to help people find the best public domain content (metadata enrichment, cover art, recommendation tools etc.)?
- How can we liberate and integrate other public domain content, like audio books, comics, and government documents into e-readers?
- How can we make it easier to get open-access e-books and facilitate open e-book access/distribution for other libraries, startups, and publishers alike?
You can register for the event on EventBrite.
I can't say that I have had any problems finding this type of content, but then I remind myself that just because I can find some doesn't mean I have found it all or that everyone has had my luck.
I missed Readium's last hackathon (it was held in December 2013 in NYC) but I'll definitely try to make it to this one. I plan to be in NYC for Digital Book World that week, and I expect I'll have time to check out the hackathon. If you're going to be at either event, please look me up.
