Started event write-up

July 12, at the Shooting Star pub, 125 Middlesex Street, London, E1

London meetup for people interested in Linked Open Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums (LOD-LAM, or possibly LOD-MLA or LOD-GLAM).  Come and find out how the LOD-LAM workshop went and give your perspective on the discussions. 


The meetup will be held on July 12, at the Shooting Star pub, London.  The Shooting Star is at 125-129 Middlesex Street, London, E1 7JF (very near Liverpool Street Station).  The pub serves food, directions at http://www.fancyapint.com/pubs/pub785.php.


Optional-but-nice RSVP below or at http://lanyrd.com/2011/lodlamlon-july/


To discuss:

  • what was learnt from LOD-LAM that's useful for the UK museums, libraries, archives sectors and users of their data?
  • is there interest in a UK-based event, either before or after DC2011 in the Hague September 21-23 or around UK Museums on the Web (#ukmw11, November 25).
  • other interesting developments in the linked open data space that's relevant to the GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) and HE (higher education) sectors



Notes from discussion

Mia, Richard, Stephen, Matthew


  • licensing to enable re-use e.g. event listings
  • is partial release a way for organisations to get comfortable with open data release?


Question: are clear rights for re-use more important than tech bells and whistles? [Answer from twitter: yes!]


Some discussion of the CIDOC-CRM conference in Romania later this year - [Richard] looking at knowledge management; lots of linked data sessions.


The chicken and the egg situation - need to get out of the abstract. [Yes!] 

Turn (online) access into visits.

[Killer app for culture - event listings + visit data (for quiet times to visit) + hit list of top 5 objects/collection level description?]

Matthew described work around activity data (which records are accessed, books borrowed the most) in libraries.


C24/Stephen potential model for working - form relationships, ask how partners will use data. Make the data publicly available to others with a clear licence at the same time...
