    On behalf of Eleanor Fink, I’m passing on some links to presentations at a recent meeting at the Smithsonian on Linked Open Data across art museums, and some amazing work being done on that front. Eleanor, as well as some of the folks highlighted here, will be at the LODLAM Summit in Montreal, and are also on this listserv if you have any questions.

    The first round of LODLAM Challenge entries are now open for voting until December 15. Public votes count for about 30% of consideration for selecting finalists, and a panel of judges plus the organizing committee (who don’t have conflicts of interest) makes up the balance of the decision making process.  We’ll be announcing three finalists by December 20th. On behalf of the 2013 LODLAM Summit organizing committee, I’d like to thank all of the entrants for putting together amazing proposals which really highlight the quality and innovation of work in this new space. http://summit2013.lodlam.net/challenge/challenge-entries/ Please go to the site to check out the entries and tell us which ones you like.  The entries are displayed randomly with their title, team, video and short description, with a link to dig deeper on each one.

    Studying the Semantic Web Online

    by
    Comment
    Cambridge Semantics, a Boston, MA based company that provides tools for creating Unified Information Applications, has created “Semantic University,” a very useful blog with a number of resources for learning the basics of the Semantic Web and Linked Data. Granted, it’s not actually a college course, but it’s a good start. Speaking of college courses though, Dr. Margaret Kipp at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee School of Information Studies has put together some amazing courses that she’s shared online.  Seeing these kinds of courses and knowing that MLIS students are learning and fast applying their skills in the field of Linked Data within libraries, archives and museums gives me a lot of hope about the future. If you’ve got other resources to share, please comment or add a post yourself.  Shoot me an email if you need a LODLAM.net login.

    Applications for LODLAM Summit open Oct. 2

    by
    Comment
    Applications for delegates to the International LODLAM Summit in Montreal will open at 8am, PST October 2, 2012, and closing 5pm PST, November 2, 2012.  Delegates will be selected and notified by November 16, 5pm PST. Unfortunately, we can only facilitate about 100 delegates at the LODLAM Summit, so we’re asking prospective delegates to fill out a short application, which will be available on October 2 at http://summit2013.lodlam.net with full details. Delegates will be selected to insure diversity of: leadership, technical expertise, field of work/research, and geographic location.  Additionally, preference will be given in order of application submissions. Because of the limited space, we are asking that institutions select one person as a delegate. We know this is difficult in bigger institutions, but one delegate will need to represent and report back to the institution. Please note that this is not an informational conference, but a meeting focused on forwarding the adoption of Linked Open Data in libraries, archives, and museums worldwide. Ideal candidates will be actively involved in or planning Linked Open Data projects. Throughout the year, we will hold meetings and seminars at various locations around the world that are open to more participants. All summit proceedings will be open and published...
