Linked Open Data (LOD) is a principle in which data objects (with, for instance, metadata about museum objects, persons, and institutions) are identified by a persistent URL. This allows linking of data from different data sources into a large "knowledge network". This session demonstrates how the principles of Linked Open Data was applied to the Dutch version of the Art and Architecture Thesaurus and RKDArtists. Both datasets are hosted by the "Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie" (RKD) in the Hague.
