> TITLE: Linked Open Data across the Humanities
> The mission of LODAH is to build a network of projects and researchers 
> working with Linked Open Data (LOD) from across the whole field of the 
> humanities who can engage with LOD-oriented research from a computer 
> science perspective. The specific objectives will be encouraging and 
> facilitating the interconnection and interoperability of open online 
> Humanities resources, both existing and forthcoming, through LOD; 
> raising awareness of new developments (both content and technology); 
> and discussing, developing, and  publishing best practices. The main 
> activities of LODAH will be to survey the use of ontologies adopted 
> across humanities; to consider how they relate to each other; to 
> identify gaps where disciplines are lacking clear exemplars and 
> guidance; to build guidelines designed not only to reduce the 
> fragmentation of approaches and ontologies but also to foster 
> integration of methods and resources; and to find and possibly link 
> other research initiatives in similar fields. This will happen by both 
> testing ontologies and techniques developed for humanities data 
> against the concerns of contemporary information engineering, and by 
> testing the assumptions of modern data networks against the complexity 
> of the humanities. This will make it easier for everyone  -  from 
> citizens to SMEs - to reach and use complex historical, literary or 
> philosophical data sets, and provide a marketplace for European SMEs 
> to develop new tools and services. The initial LODAH membership 
> includes a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, but  is also open 
> to unforeseen domains and will be an environment in which young 
> researchers can develop portable skills.
> KEYWORDS: Digital Humanities; Linked Open Data; Semantic Web; Cultural
