Linked Open Data for Cultural Heritage

Jeff Edelstein, Lola Galla, Carolyn Li-Madeo, Julia Marden, Alison Rhonemus & Noreen Y. Whysel
This paper surveys the landscape of linked open data projects in cultural heritage, examining the work of groups from around the world. Traditionally, linked open data has been ranked using the five star method proposed by Tim Berners-Lee. We found this ranking to be lacking when evaluating how cultural heritage groups not merely develop linked open datasets, but find ways to use linked data to augment user experience. Building on the five-star method, we developed...

Linked Open Data for Cultural Heritage: Evolution of an Information Technology

This paper examines how linked open data (LOD) can solve the communication design problems that these institutions face and help...
