OXLOD is a one-year pilot project funded by the University of Oxford to assess the practical benefits of using linked 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 16th October 2017.

Open Workshops will be held on the second Tuesday of the month at  Oxford e-Research Centre; part of the University's Department of Engineering Science. They will offer opportunities to learn about Linked Data from experts informally. Participants are welcome to bring their own lunch. Please note the start time of 1pm.

At this workshop, data from the Ashmolean Museum’s Islamic collection will be presented and combined with objects from the Museum of the History of Science (MHS) and manuscripts from the Bodleian Library (FIHRIST catalogue).

Andrew Morrison (Software Engineer at the Bodleian Library and OXLOD Library Lead) will present work on transforming TEI records into Linked Data, Stephen Johnston (Assistant Keeper at the MHS) on scientific instruments.
