LODLAM Course Now Offered at Pratt SI

Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums (LODLAM) is one of the fastest growing areas of data development, offering users new and exciting avenues of creation, discovery, interaction, and analysis of digital cultural heritage content.

LIS 670 introduces the fundamental principles, best practices, and latest technologies behind Linked Data and the Semantic Web. The course will cover the lifecycle of linked data development — from data modeling to dissemination and consumption. Through a series of readings, guest speakers, and projects, students¬†will explore how memory institutions and cultural organizations create and share Linked Open Data.

This course is taught by Dr. Cristina Pattuelli, Associate Professor at Pratt Institute School of Information, Director of the Linked Jazz Project, and Co-Chair of the 4th International LODLAM Summit.
