Linked Open Data Projects

The MIA (Minneapolis Institute of Arts) is not yet engaged in specifically LOD projects, but we are actively positioning ourselves to do so. We recently published our complete collections metadata on Gitbhub with a CC0 license. We are preparing our public domain images for release as well, and working with the DPLA on getting our data into their repository via Github. We have an IMLS grant to extend our digital asset management and develop APIs to join our various content databases via a single interface (which will eventually become public). As part of this project, we are investigating ways to enhance our data and prepare it for becoming linked open data. We have a lot of work to do and want to understand options, progress being made in the wider cultural/GLAM community and best practices as they emerge.
