2891_lodlamto-628x250You’ve heard of linked data and its potential to connect resources and collections. You know the why, but wonder how do you do linked data? How do you finish? It’s time to get some practical experience.

On May 12 and 13, 2016, the cultural heritage community is gathering in Toronto to share and develop skills in a workshop that will link data and link people. LODLAM NORTH: Open Data for Libraries, Museums &Archives (#LODLAMTO).

This two-day event starts at Ryerson University with four concurrent half-day workshops presented by well-known practitioners in the field. The two tracks are designed for beginners (Intro to LOD, triples and RDF; Prepping your data) and intermediate (LOD publishing, RDFa; SPARQL, working with RDF).

You’ll bring your new skills from Day 1, to York University on Day 2 and participate in a morning of short presentations and discussions followed by a linked data hackfest where we’ll work through some case studies for the community.

This event will give you the skills to benefit from, and contribute to, the linked open data environment and foster a connects cultural heritage community.
