DH and Linked Data

I’d like to explore how digital humanities can incorporate linked data into their projects, using identifiers from ORCID;, as well as projects like DBpedia, GeoNames, and FOAF. We should also discuss library-centric projects like VIAF and FAST. Is anyone in DH using linked data? Is there an ontology of DH projects? Discuss!

About Danielle Cunniff Plumer

I am a digital collections consultant working with cultural heritage institutions interested in putting their collections online. I do a lot of work in the areas of strategic program and project planning and in metadata creation, standards, and normalization. My research interests include information extraction from textual materials and natural language processing for information retrieval. I'm currently working on automated creation of encoded archival description and encoded archival context, with some digressions into linked data. I teach classes and workshops on descriptive and preservation metadata, digital curation and preservation, digitization, controlled vocabularies and thesauri, and grantwriting.
