Bringing History Alive: Telling stories with Linked Data and open source tools

A session at Web Directions South 2011

Thursday 13th October, 2011

2:40pm to 3:30pm (EST)

The Australian War Memorial is connecting and enriching online archives and collections toward building a platform for telling history. Through Drupal 7 and Linked Data, the Memorial intends to develop tools that designers, researchers and historians can use to help find new ways of building historical narratives.

During this session we will demonstrate some early prototypes and experiments, key uses of Linked Data, practical publishing tools and discuss how this work is unfolding inside one of Australia’s major collecting institutions.
