Interest in LODLAM

The DPLA is a highly collaborative endeavor and we hope to identify opportunities to expand our partnerships and engage LOD-LAM attendees in participating in the ongoing development of this initiative through apps and services development, and to help our communities "free their metadata."

We're extremely interested in working with the GLAM communities at all institutional levels to work towards adoption/enhancement of our data to make it open and shareable amongst and beyond these organizational alliances.
