Intro to LODLAM talk: Live from the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian Institution hosted a day of LODLAM on September 16, 2011, including the presentation, An Introduction to Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives & Museums. The talk was webcast live and archived thanks to the generous support of the Smithsonian CTO Series. I’d also like to thank Effie Kapsalis for her amazing organizing efforts around the events, the many staff at the Smithsonian who helped make this a reality, and a great group of participants.

Below are the slides. Both the video presentation and the slides are available as CC BY for you to use as you see fit.

    Captivating talk by captivating speaker. It is very exciting to share in Jon’s vision that we can link up cultural heritage and reap the benefits on the scale that rabbits breed or mushrooms grow. When the whole thing becomes self-referring and the web itself is the subject we are documenting, it will probably realize to maintain itself for us! Great to see the Smithsonian keeping its status as a cultural vanguard.
