Abstract

Linked data. You know what it is and you know how it works, but are you ready to create it? At the University of California, Irvine, a group of venturesome catalogers, archivists, IT specialists, research librarians, and administrators are working together on a NEH-funded project called “Piloting Linked Open Data for Artists' Books.” Since, often, the artist book is by nature a defiance of existing limitations and definitions, it is a natural resource for the combination of teamwork, creativity, standardization, and online visualization. This panel will present the artist’s book project as a whole from three different perspectives: collaboration, artistic and scholarly use in digital collections, and linked data manipulation.
