Mimas and UKOLN worked together on an exciting JISC funded project to make Archives Hub data available as structured Linked Data, for the benefit of education and research. We worked in partnership with Eduserv, Talis and OCLC, leading experts within their fields. The aim was put archival and bibliographic data at the heart of the Linked Data Web, enabling new links to be made between diverse content sources and enabling the free and flexible exploration of data so that researchers can make new connections between subjects, people, organisations and places to reveal more about our history and society.
The Locah Blog was one of the main outputs, documenting the process in detail. It is now integrated into the main Archives Hub blog.
