Pre-recorded presentation

In June of 2017, Carnegie Hall published its performance history as linked open data under a Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Public Domain data license. Carnegie Hall Data Lab (carnegiehall.github.io/datalab) was launched in January of 2020 as a learning space for Carnegie Hall to expand our understanding of information innovation through experiments with linked open data, semantic technologies, and data-driven strategies that leverage the resources of the Carnegie Hall Archives. We strive to reinforce Carnegie Hall's role as a leading cultural heritage institution by investigating new ways to engage and educate by sharing a wider range of resources and context about our past, present, and future. A primary goal of our Data Lab is to use Carnegie Hall's rich historical legacy as focal point or lens through which to tell untold stories and examine hidden connections within the world of music and other cultural and societal domains. We hope to showcase what a relatively small staff with rudimentary developer skills and limited IT support has been able to accomplish through our lightweight, nimble, and experimental linked open data initiative. We'll give a quick overview of our LOD, talk briefly about the creation of the Data Lab, review our progress thus far, and highlight some fun and interesting collaborations we're working on Intended audience: GLAM professionals interested in learning about a LOD project accomplished with relatively limited developer skills and a minimum of IT support.
