Short Bio

Corey A Harper has been the Metadata Services Librarian at NYU since early 2007. The first 2 years of that time was spent on an ILS migration, and on the implementation and upkeep of a next-generation Enterprise Search System: Ex Libris' Primo. This experience has further convinced him of the need for more rigorous data modeling and the use of common web protocols to support metadata interoperability. Corey co-chairs the Dublin Core Architecture Forum, co-founded ALA's Linked Library Data Interest Group, and helped organize the 2012 LOD-LAM-NYC. He is currently wrapping up research on linked data in Archives.

Interest in LODLAM

I've been active in the LOD-LAM community since it's inception, and have been advocating and researching semantic web technologies in libraries since 2001. My research has been shifting more in an archives & museums direction, both through my research and through my involvement in various grants such as Linked Archival Metadata (LiAM) at Tuft's University and the Linked Ancient World Data Institute (LAWDI) at NYU & Drew University.

Linked Open Data Projects

This fall I've been on a research leave working on a linked data representation of 1600 Archival Finding Aids encoded in EAD. A brief description of the project can be found in my code4lib conference session proposal:

More information on this project, including a status report, will be available shortly in the new year.
