Digital Humanities Winter Institute Offering Course on Linked Open Data
January 7-11, 2013
University of Maryland, College Park, MD


Registration Link: http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/?q=registration

This winter, the Digital Humanities Winter Institute
(http://mith.umd.edu/dhwi/) will be offering a course
devoted to "Publishing and Using Linked Open Data" led by Richard
Urban, Assistant Professor, Florida State University College of
Communication and Information.

The publication of structured knowledge representations and open data
on the Web opens new possibilities for collaboration among humanities
researchers and cultural heritage organizations. This course will
introduce participants to the core principles of Linked Open Data (LOD),
techniques for building and understanding LOD models, how to locate LOD
sources for research, tools for manipulating, visualizing, and integrating
available data, and best practice methodologies for publicizing and
sharing datasets.

The Digital Humanities Winter Institute at the Maryland Institute for
Technology in the Humanities (MITH) is an extension of the
highly-successful Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) at the
University of Victoria. DHWI provides an opportunity for scholars to
learn new skills relevant to digital scholarship and mingle with
like-minded colleagues through coursework, social events, and lectures
during an intensive, week-long event. Taking place during intersession,
just prior to start of the spring semester at many institutions, DHWI
especially welcomes participants not just from the academic community
but also from cultural heritage institutions, government, libraries,
and the broader public.
