Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives and Museums (LODLAM) is gaining prominence in the cultural heritage community, and especially amongst memory institutions as it promises to profoundly impact the way resources are discovered and accessed.
Recognizing the need for education, discussion and support within this growing community a two-day event will take place May 12-13, 2016 in Toronto.
The first day is focused on training workshops with a track for beginners and another track for participants with more experience. Tutorials will cover areas such as cleaning, publishing, and linking metadata as well as querying, consuming, and connecting datasets. Expert practitioners will demonstrate real-world examples, teach open source tools, and give hands-on instruction.
The second day will be focused on presentations, discussions and community building.
Registration is open. Registration fees are $55 CDN, including taxes.
