Linked Open Data for Cultural Heritage: Evolution of an Information Technology

Marden, Julia; Li-Madeo, Carolyn; Whysel, Noreen Y.; Edelstein, Jeffrey

Communication design encompasses how information is structured behind the scenes, as much as how the information is shared across networks (Potts & Albers). Information architecture can profoundly alter our perceptions of society and culture (Swarts). Today cultural heritage institutions like libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) are searching for new ways to engage and educate patrons. This paper examines how linked open data (LOD) can solve the communication design problems that these institutions face and help LAM patrons and new meaning in cultural heritage artifacts.
