You are cordially invited to the public launch of a new online platform which will aid researchers exploring the history of modern medicine.
The Commoning Biomedicine platform provides researchers with an easy to use search engine that networks existing online collections of oral histories with biomedical scientists and clinicians. This platform represents a first attempt to make disparate online collections searchable to researchers from a single site and forms part of the commitment of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science to making open source digital infrastructure that benefits the whole research community. At the launch the team of the ComBio project will showcase the platform. Together with researchers from the Oral History and Experimental Media Laboratory they will discuss the future of research practices at the intersection of oral history, digital humanities, and the history of science.
Please join us for a celebration of two years of hard work and a discussion about how we can produce and preserve knowledge for the common good.
