OXLOD is a one-year pilot project funded by the University of Oxford to assess the practical benefits of using linking data for its Museums, Collections and related academic research. Linking data in different parts of the University will benefit research, enrich ‘discovery’, and create a model that can be used by other institutions. A successful pilot has the potential of further funding. OXLOD uses Open Source software and International Standards. It officially began on 16 October 2017.

Open Workshops will be held on the second Tuesday of the month at 12.30pm at The University of Oxford's e-Research Centre, part of the Department of Engineering Science. They will offer opportunities to learn about Linked Data from experts informally. The room is booked until 2.00pm; participants are welcome to bring their own lunch.

Each Workshop will provide up to date progress reports, brief presentations about the datasets linked over the past month, opportunities to transfer knowledge and attract new data from the broadly defined heritage sector. The second Open Workshop, on Tuesday 12 December at 12.30pm at Oxford e-Research Centre, will review progress of the past month. Dr Stephen Harris, Druce Curator of the Oxford University Herbaria, will talk about linking BRAHMS database to OXLOD.
