The Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives and Museums (LODLAM)* training day videos have been posted. The presentations focussed on “hands-on applications and examples” sharing “approaches to both publishing and reusing Linked Open Data in library, archive, and museum settings.” The organizers saw this session as an “amazing prototype” and plan to apply the experiences gained here to their first official LODLAM Training Day in 2015.
The session was organized by Jon Voss (Historypin and co-founder of the International LODLAM Summit) and took place at the 10th Annual Semantic Technology & Business Conference (SemTechBiz), August 19, 2014 in San Jose, California. The following videos, along with the slides, were posted earlier this month:
- Introduction / Jon Voss, Historypin
- Librarians’ adventure into LODLAM / Silvia Southwick and Cory Lampert, UNLV
- Publishing LOD with a bent toward archivists / Eric Lease Morgan, Notre Dame
- International Image Interoperability Framework and JSON-LD / Rob Sanderson, Stanford
- Now What? Creating Innovative LODLAM / Duane Degler & Neal Johnson, Design for Context
- 0 to 60 on SPARQL queries in 50 minutes / Ethan Gruber, American Numismatic Society
- What to do with Linked Data? / Eetu Mäkelä, Aalto University School of Science
- Google, Making Freebase Mashups / Jarek Wlkiewicz & Shawn Simister
- Worldcat, Works, and Schema.org / Richard Wallis, OCLC
This is a nice overview of the current state of LODLAM and a great introduction to some recent linked data initiatives.
