Impacts of Working with Linked Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Linked open data (LOD) is a huge trend in libraries, archives, and museums, but what does it actually take to accomplish an LOD project? And, now that we’ve made LOD, how can it be consumed? Moreover, what effects does it have on your institutional capacity and teamwork? This panel will address the realities of choosing or developing appropriate tools, presenting RDF data to users, and creating documentation. It will also discuss the larger impacts of LOD projects on institutional infrastructure. Alexandra Provo and Lukas Klic will outline the final phase of the Villa I Tatti project, Florentine Drawings: A Linked Catalogue for the Semantic Web. Cory Lampert will discuss an experimental interface that queries University of Las Vegas linked open data. Emilee Mathews and Kelly Spring will present the concrete effects of collaboration between catalogers, archivists, IT specialists, and subject librarians on piloting linked open data for artists’ books at the University of California, Irvine.
