I am a Senior Applications Developer with NYPL Labs, where I am developing tools to manage and disseminate data about our archival collections. In a previous role I was part of NYPL's digital repository team, where I developed an application to create and manage metadata for digital objects. When I'm not working, I do other things. I try to make art when I can, and music when I have the time and inclination, but lately most of my time is taken up by work and fatherhood.
|Interest in LODLAM||
I'd like to share ideas about my project with other developers in order to get input and to learn from other people's work (and maybe even do the same for others).
|Linked Open Data Projects||
I am currently working with the Metropolitan New York Library Council on a proposed project to build a LOD-based discovery system for special collections resources relating to the history of New York City. The project would include gathering heterogenous metadata from a number of cultural heritage institutions, developing tools to transform the data into triples/quads (using a standardized set of vocabularies), and aggregating this data in triple store, over which a web-based search interface could be built. The goal is to provide a practical, working prototype of a system that uses linked data to facilitate research across multiple collections.
