Interest in LODLAM

I would like to understand better the promise of Linked Open Data and Academic Research Data, particularly in the Sciences.

Linked Open Data Projects

I am one of the Faciltiators for the CARL intiative to create a Community of Oractice for Research Data in Canada. I took a Study Leave in 2004 to explore how academic libraries might paly a role in providing access to science research data and attended Co-Data Conference that year. I continue to track the developments around Research Data.
