    Title: Free Your Metadata

    Team: Free Your Metadata

    Short Description

    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.

    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: Mismuseos.net: Art After Technology (putting cultural data to work).

    Team: MisMuseos

     

    Short description:

    The main goal of Mismuseos.net is to present a case of exploitation of Linked Data for the G.L.A.M. community through innovative end-user applications built on GNOSS, a semantic and social software platform. Mismuseos.net is a free access semantic online solution for end-users that allows them to find and discover museums-related content, and also reach some related external information thanks to the correlation with other datasets. We currently have collections of seven Spanish museums, where users can browse over 15,000 pieces of art and 2,650 artists. The featured applications are: faceted searches, enriched contexts and navigation through graphs. The search engine enables aggregated searches by different facets and summarization of results for each successive search.

    Mismuseos.net obtains the information about cultural goods from the Europeana dataset and the online collections of public Spanish Museums. It also extracts and links data from additional datasets of the Linking Open Data cloud, either to supplement information or to generate enriched contexts: Dbpedia, Geonames and Didactalia (a GNOSS project with an index of more than 50,000 open educational resources).
