Linked Open Data

Linked Open Data is a developing set of principles for publishing re-usable data sets that work at Internet scale. In this session we will explore the progress made by libraries, archives, and museums towards sharing descriptions of their resources as linked data. We will also review emerging digital humanities projects that are exploring linked data and consider the available opportunities for local digital humanities projects.

Richard Urban, Assistant Professor in the School of Library and Information Science, will lead our discussion. Richard has extensive experience researching large-scale cultural heritage aggregations and metadata. In January 2013, he will lead a week-long workshop on Linked Data at the Digital Humanities Winter Institute.
