Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums Summit

A two-day meeting of librarians, archivists, museum professionals, and humanities scholars to explore approaches for connecting disparate online humanities collections using the Linked Open Data model.

Linked Open Data has begun to dramatically increase the amount of structured data available on the World Wide Web, which in turn is proving to offer incredible potential to share and access data across the humanities. Yet despite the possibilities, only a few institutions in the US have begun to embrace the use of Linked Open Data. The Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums Summit ("LOD-LAM") will take place in San Francisco in May of 2011. The two-day summit will gather leading US practitioners, industry leaders, and proponents of Linked Open Data in the humanities, together with several leaders abroad, to define the field, address barriers to adoption, and create a report and recommendations for implementing Linked Open Data projects in the humanities.
