Workshop: Linked Open Data Ecosystem for Heritage Data
During the workshop, we will take inspiration from the Linked Open Data Ecosystem for the Performing Arts to guide our thoughts about the development of a linked open data ecosystem for heritage data. After an introduction to the data ecosystem approach, we will work in three thematic groups to discuss the next steps in view of the establishment of a Linked Open Data Ecosystem for Heritage Data in Switzerland.
Theme 1: Inventory of Swiss heritage institutions
Moderated by: Heike Bazak (VSA) and Matthias Nepfer (NB)
Theme 2: Interlinking of holdings (“archives at” in Wikidata)
Moderated by: Michael Gasser (ETH-Bibliothek) and Lothar Schmitt (ZB Zürich)
Theme 3: Linked data in the context of heritage data platforms: data provision and semantic search
Moderated by: Bernd Uttenweiler (ETH-Bibliothek) and Beat Estermann (BFH)
Workshop: Challenges for the #GLAMhack2020
In view of the 2020 edition of the #GLAMhack (4-6 June at the FHGR in Chur), we propose a collective brainstorming session to try and formulate some interesting challenges. The main focus of the hackathon will lie on Linked Open Data, Machine Learning, Human-Computer-Interaction and Crowdsourcing. You can either present your own ideas or just help others by giving inputs or asking questions.
