International Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums Summit
The International Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums Summit (LOD-LAM) will be held in San Francisco on 2-3 June 2011.
LOD-LAM will convene leaders in their respective areas of expertise from the humanities and sciences to catalyse practical and actionable approaches to publishing Linked Open Data, specifically:
- Identify the tools and techniques for publishing and working with Linked Open Data
- Draft precedents and policy for licensing and copyright considerations
regarding the publishing of library, archive, and museum metadata.
- Publish definitions and promote use cases that will give LAM staff the
tools they need to advocate for Linked Open Data in their institutions.
Applications open on 1 February. Limited travel grants will be available. The hashtag for the event is #lodlam.
