Linked Art in Practice
Monday, April 3rd: 12:00pm - 3:00pm
We will touch on the benefits and drawbacks of linked open data for cultural heritage with an introduction to linked data and the Linked Art model, which is used by the Getty and other art institutions in museum applications. The majority of the workshop will be devoted to gaining hands-on experience with getting data from linked data endpoints published by both the Getty and other institutions, transforming that data using open-source tools, and consuming it within example applications. Using the Getty\’s publicly available data APIs and open-source Linked Art library with the hosted collaborative notebook platform Observable, participants will walk through a sample set of exercises that will establish a common framework of understanding and provide a sandbox environment for further experimentation.
