Digital Humanities Brown Bag Lunch

This brown bag lunch is titled: Linked Data & Discovery Projects by Patrick Hochstenbach at Ghent University. ‘Linked Data & Discovery Projects’ presents the application of linked data in three projects at Ghent University Library in Belgium. In the “writing” project, the library team introduced the creation of linked data in the ‘Islamic Historic Open Data Platform’ project, which tries to create a biography of medieval manuscripts from Egypt and Syria. In the “reading” project, the library used linked data to create an autocomplete search functionality of author names over heterogeneous source databases using the Triple Fragment Platform (TPF). The most recent project is a Mellon funded PHD research project to create a “read-write” linked data network of interacting repositories to capture the digital scholarly record, make it accessible, and preserve it over time.
