    Title: LODLAM Patterns

    Team: LODLAM Patterns

    The LODLAM Patterns website will provide a venue for identifying, publishing, and refining what I call “representation patterns” for cultural heritage resources. Initial patterns will emerge from an analysis of contemporary cultural heritage metadata standards, but these will only serve to prime the pump. At the LODLAM Summit I will invite interested members of the community to join me in identifying useful patterns and improving published patterns through comments and discussion.

    Title: Maphub – old maps in globally connected data networks

    Team: Maphub

    Short Description

    Old maps are a record of the past, exposing features people might want to tell stories about. We built Maphub, which is a prototype Web application that enables them to do so by creating annotations on digitized high-resolution historical maps. By semantically tagging regions on the map, users create associations between their annotations and resources in open Web-based data networks. These associations are leveraged to enable multilingual search and to generate overlays of historical maps on modern mapping applications. Contributed annotations are shared on the Web following the W3C Open Annotation specification. Maphub is built on the Linked Data technology stack and a first demo has been setup with the Library of Congress’ historical map collection. The high-level goal of this project is (i) to showcase how existing Linked data can be used and integrated into existing scholarly processes, such as annotations, and (ii) vice-versa, how applications could support users in contributing data and knowledge to broader, open data and knowledge networks.

    Title: NTNU University Library — linked data 2013

    Team: NTNU University Library

    Short description: We have moved a little way beyond data conversion since starting with linked data in 2009 and are moving on with our fully fledged metadata-driven workflow for archives, special collections and photography. We’re creating a lightweight Web infrastructure that provides a modular approach to doing what libraries need to do; we bring the simple linked data framework, which makes space for real innovation in the data creation and visualization process. Providing simple industry standard tools that IT admins won’t balk at having to maintain, we believe that this is state-of-the-art technology: simple and functional, yet providing easy access to a real-world linked data toolkit.

    The Free Your Metadata project wants to leverage existing tools to generate more adoption of Linked Data principles amongst librarians, archivists and museum professionals. Academia and companies have generated tremendous progress the last ten years regarding standards and technologies. We want to focus on large-scale adoption of these standards and technologies by making them available for a non-technical audience.
