    LODLAM Training Day Videos & Slides

    Thanks to our friends at SemTechBiz (big ups to Eric Franzon) and amazing LODLAMers around the world who volunteered to put on sessions, we were able to put together an amazing prototype for something we hope to take on the road in 2015: the first LODLAM Training Day. We had an incredible lineup of people sharing their real-world approaches to both publishing and reusing Linked Open Data in library, archive, and museum settings. The idea with the Training Day is to get into hands-on applications and examples rather than conceptual talks, and begin giving people the means to share and create within the “web of data.” We were bootstrapping it a bit, but we did put together videos of the talks (with the exception of Rob’s, in which we very sadly lost the last half of his talk due to camera fail), and everyone shared their slides. You can see all of the talks in a Youtube Channel, or see the individual talks embedded below with links to their slides or examples. * Jon Voss, Historypin and co-founder of the International LODLAM Summit Publishing, Sharing, and Opening * Silvia Southwick and Cory Lampert, UNLV, Librarians’ adventure into LODLAM (slides, demo...

    We’re thrilled to announce that we’re teaming up with the 10th annual Semantic Technology and Business Conference (aka SemTech 2014) to offer an exclusive Training Day focused on Linked Open Data in libraries, archives and museums on August 19, 2014 in San Jose, California. We’ll do a single stream day of hands on tutorials covering a range of skillsets, starting from novice and moving toward advanced.  The cost to participants will be only $75 (we can accommodate a maximum of 60).  By the end of the day, you’ll walk away with an arsenal of tools for publishing, querying, and building with Linked Open Data. The call for workshops is now open.  If you’d like to present a 60-90 minute workshop, please submit your idea before May 8, 2014, using this form.  Workshop leaders will receive a full 3-day access pass to SemTech (worth $1,495).  There will be up to six workshops selected. Registration for the training day will open soon.  If you’d like to be notified of news or registration regarding the LODLAM Training Day, leave your email here, and we’ll let you know.

    Be sure to tune in for the Semantic Web in Libraries Conference, taking place in Hamburg Germany 25-27 November.  Workshops on 25 November will not be streamed, but sessions on 26 and 27 November will be streamed and recorded. You can follow along the Twitter hashtag, #swib13. It’s once again a great program and thanks to the streaming video is a fantastic way to tune in to the most up to date discussions on Linked Open Data in libraries and GLAMs. From their site: Linked Open Data (LOD) has become a widespread method for the publication and management of data on the web. Many libraries and related institutions have already run projects or launched products that comply with the LOD paradigm. New projects, services and tools are emerging continuously. The SWIB conference aims to provide substantial information on LOD developments relevant to the library world and to foster the exchange of ideas and experiences among practitioners. SWIB encourages thinking outside the box by involving participants and speakers from other domains, such as scholarly communications, museums and archives, or related industries. As in the years before, SWIB13 will be organized by the North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Centre (hbz) and the ZBW...
