OXLOD is a one-year pilot project funded by the University of Oxford to assess the practical benefits of using linked data for its Museums, Collections and related academic research. Linking data in different parts of the University will benefit research, enrich ‘discovery’, and create a model that can be used by other institutions. A successful pilot has the potential of further funding. OXLOD uses Open Source software and International Standards. It officially began on 16th October 2017.

Open Workshops will offer opportunities to learn about Linked Data from experts informally. Participants are welcome to bring their own lunch.

Each Workshop will provide up to date progress reports, brief presentations about the datasets linked over the past month, opportunities to transfer knowledge and attract new data from the broadly defined heritage sector.

OXLOD’s 4th Open Workshop will take place on Tuesday 13th February at 1pm (please note the slightly later start time this month) at Oxford e-Research Centre.

OXLOD is taking a linked data approach using enhanced technologies, with support from Chris Powell, the Ashmolean Museum’s Data Architect. This builds upon the Ashmolean Museum’s Department of Eastern Art's Eastern Art Online launched in 2010; and a selection of Islamic, Indian and Chinese material from Eastern Art Online prototyped as Linked Data in CLAROS.

The 4th OXLOD Open Workshop will focus on Indian object data, and will be followed by two other workshops on Islamic and Chinese objects and texts
