The reel of cotton in the L-Space: using linked data to open up your information services

A session at NDF2013

Wednesday 27th November, 2013

2:00pm to 2:25pm (NZMT)

Libraries, galleries, archives and museums are wonderful places to get lost in. With the wonders of the internet, what were once shelves of books or walls of display cases and paintings in a building with four walls and a roof are now a multidimensional labyrinth of knowledge, power, time and mass.

Like the Librarian at the Unseen University who wisely navigates the L-Space with a reel of cotton, we too can utilise this magic dimension in the way we deliver information and knowledge services. From the quick and dead easy to the complex and enriched, this talk will discuss how the various types of linked data available can enhance our services, redefine our institutions, and generally make the information realm a more collaborative and connected place: from analytic linking, text encoding, and semantic cataloguing, to twitter, tumblr and Trove.
