Broadcasting Audiovisual Data: Using linked data and local authority aggregators to enhance discoverability for broadcasting collections

The federation of three archival radio collections held by the University of Maryland, the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and the University of Minnesota using a linked open data framework for use by scholars, students, and the general public. Several case studies using the collections will be developed to demonstrate the project’s potential use by different audiences.

The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin-Madison seeks Level III funding for a project entitled 'Broadcasting Audiovisual Data: Using linked data and local authority aggregators.' The project will expand the capabilities developed during the creation of the NEH-funded 'Unlocking the Airwaves' project (PW-259067-18) to virtually connect four historic collections across three institutions: University of Maryland, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and University of Minnesota which contain overlapping and complementary archival radio broadcasts. By linking these collections, we will deliver an innovative linked data framework that enables robust research across a number of fields, including media studies, cultural history, and sociology. The project will be a model for future initiatives that seek to connect and contextualize disbursed a/v collections.
