Short Bio

Corina MacDonald is an information specialist and developer. She completed a Masters degree in Library and Information Studies in 2008 at McGill University, with a specialization in knowledge management. Her professional interests include the role of open content, technologies and standards in community and capacity building, electronic publishing and digital heritage. She worked as a heritage information analyst at the Canadian Heritage Information Network from 2008 to 2010 before beginning work as an independent consultant for digital cultural projects. She is currently the Project Manager for the e-artexte Open Access repository for visual arts publishing, and a freelance webmaster and trainer.

Interest in LODLAM

At Artexte we are working to promote an Open Access publishing model to visual arts publishers. Such publishers include museums, galleries and artist-run centres. This is a community that in general has had limited exposure to the concepts of Open Access, or Linked Open Data. I would like to discover possibilities for collaborative projects that would help to demonstrate the value of open bibliographic data when it is combined with other data sources from cultural heritage institutions.
