4 What is Linked Open Data? 04 Web of data made available with a common format (RDF) where the data and the relationships between the data can be queried. RDF is a machine-readable language for representing information about resources in the World Wide Web. RDF allows us to make statements about resources using three elements: Subject, Object and Predicate (triple). Subject (“Hadleigh Castle”), a Predicate (“carried out by”), and an Object (“John Constable”). MCN 2014 SEMANTIC WEB INITIATIVES – MAKING LINKED OPEN DATA

5 How is it different from relational databases? 05 LOD uses URIs for names of resources Predicates make explicit the nature of the relationship between the resources LOD creates a network of knowledge MCN 2014 SEMANTIC WEB INITIATIVES – MAKING LINKED OPEN DATA

7 Roles of Linked Open Data at the YCBA 07 Enrich our data set Link to other museums collections Enhance access to YCBA collections Support scholarly research Repurpose our own content MCN 2014 SEMANTIC WEB INITIATIVES – MAKING LINKED OPEN DATA

8 Enrich our data set: ‒Reference the unique identifiers of concepts, people and places from trusted authorities (Getty vocabularies, British Museum, ICONCLASS, VIAF…) 08MCN 2014 SEMANTIC WEB INITIATIVES – MAKING LINKED OPEN DATA

9 Link to other museums collections ‒Break down the data siloes to tell fuller stories about objects 09MCN 2014 SEMANTIC WEB INITIATIVES – MAKING LINKED OPEN DATA

10 Enhance access to YCBA collections ‒Enhanced traffic to our data set ‒Get discovered by people who don’t know the museum but get to us through links to our data set Support scholarship ‒ResearchSpace project MCN 2014 SEMANTIC WEB INITIATIVES – MAKING LINKED OPEN DATA

11 Repurpose our own content ‒pull data from many different places in order to tell richer, fuller stories about our objects (annotations in Stanford Mirador digital viewer) MCN 2014 SEMANTIC WEB INITIATIVES – MAKING LINKED OPEN DATA
