Webinar: Linked Art in Practice using Jupyter Code Notebooks - Connecting Cultural Heritage Collections Data
Online event (Zoom)
Date & Time
Tuesday 03 May 2022 13:00 BST - 14:00 BST
The AHRC-funded Linked Art II project and Digital Scholarship at Oxford invite you to a webinar at 1-2pm (UK time) on Tuesday 3 May 2022, to be held on Zoom.
The webinar will be of interest to any practitioners or scholars working with collections data who wish to learn about software tools, including ‘code notebooks’, which can be used to create and apply Linked Art. We’ll share how we’ve assembled coded examples using freely available tools to bring together and share the works of John Ruskin, by geo-locating works across different collections and assembling them into timelines and storymaps.
Please register in advance for the webinar using the link below.
Linked Art is a new data standard being developed to describe artworks and facilitate connections between cultural heritage collections, thereby creating new opportunities for digital discovery and research using this interlinked data.
In this webinar, Research Software Engineer Tanya Gray will guide attendees through a practical exploration of transforming, reconciling, and visualising Linked Art, using real-world data from museums and galleries worldwide. These will be demonstrated using ‘code notebooks’ developed during the Linked Art II project and implemented in Jupyter. The notebooks provide step-by-step illustration and explanation, and can provide a foundation for further customisation.
The webinar complements a forthcoming public questionnaire about Linked Art, which will launch in the coming weeks and we would be grateful if you could complete.
The webinar will end with a Q&A session during which audience members can ask any questions about the code notebooks and forthcoming questionnaire. In addition, speakers will be available to take further questions for 30 minutes following the main webinar (i.e. 2-2.30pm).
