LODLAM Workshop Leaders Interest Form
We’re seeking volunteers to run workshops at a number of key conferences
throughout 2015-16 designed to teach the basics of Linked Open Data in
Libraries, Archives and Museums LODLAM. In doing so, we hope to strengthen
a growing community of practitioners willing and able to build upon shared
cultural heritage and scientific data. The expectation is that we can
assemble and share the workshop plans and content to enable more and more
people to host and teach them over time.

In particular, we’re looking for people to teach tools in 1.5 hr sessions
with real data that address the following 4 categories:
--Big picture view: Introduce the basic concepts of LODLAM integrating
examples of what people are already doing with it.
--Cleaning: Use Open Refine to clean and reconcile datasets to make them
more usable for the public.
--Publishing: Demonstrate ways that people can publish datasets in the
library/archive/museum space - from publishing CSV’s and posting datasets
in Github to rdf’izing in Open Refine or using triplestores.
--Reusing and Building: Teach SPARQL as well as open source tools used to
visualize single or multiple collections.

Let us know if you can help!

Please contact Jon Voss (jon.voss at shiftdesign.org.uk), Ethan Gruber (
ewg4xuva at gmail.com), or Anne Gaynor (amgaynor1 at gmail.com) if you have any
questions.
