An in-person workshop with Jack O’Malley, Metadata Lead at the Frick Art Reference Library. Unlock the power of linked data with our workshop, where participants will learn how to start modeling and publishing their metadata as linked data.

In this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to bring their own data to dynamically craft a static microsite using spreadsheets and open-source software. With hands-on activities, attendees will walk away with tangible tools for working with linked data. From beginners to advanced users, everyone can explore design, content, and user experience aspects of linked data.

Note: Participants will need to bring their own laptops and some data examples for the workshop: metadata for three to five example resources and a small set of properties from an ontology of their choice. Representations or parts of the resources should come from multiple sources that can be linked to directly via URL. Participants will also need to install the provided system requirements (Python 3.7 >, Docker) and GitHub repository beforehand. The tools setup instructions can be found in the workshop repository.

Please email info@nytsl.org with any questions!

Jack O'Malley is the Metadata Lead at the Frick Art Reference Library, where his primary responsibility is to describe and enrich access to digital resources, including by advancing the use of linked open data.
