English abstract

Linked Open Data is seen as a promising web technology allowing libraries, archives and other cultural institutions to connect and share their data on the web to foster new forms of content discovery and use. Linked Jazz is an ongoing project that applies Linked Open Data technology to digital collections of jazz history to reveal the network of relationships between jazz artists, ultimately enhancing visibility and access of cultural heritage content. The Linked Jazz project has progressed in an iterative and experimental fashion through the design and the development of new tools and practices that include data extraction from textual primary sources, data curation through mapping and authority work and data crowdsourcing. This presentation will use Linked Jazz as a case study, sharing the lessons learned as well as the contributions made to the knowledgebase of sound principles, methods, and best practices for developing Linked Open Data for libraries, archives and museums.
