Make it easier to find and reuse Philly GLAM / DH data

Data are absolutely crucial to many (all?) DH projects, so making it easy to discover and use data is important to creating a fertile DH environment. Galleries, Libraries, Archives, Museums, and even existing DH projects can help DH thrive by making their data freely available for others to use/ reuse for different purposes.

I’d like to discuss the value in, and roadblocks to, adding GLAM /DH datasets or APIs to existing registries like Open Data Philly where both DH and a wider audience can find them.  Or, as an addendum to John Theibault’s session idea creating a site where Philly area DH projects are listed and datasets / API’s are listed as well. Or if existing national / global registries exist, adding data sets there.
