Revision as of 15:45, 6 December 2012

Drew University and New York University’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) will host the Linked Ancient World Data Institute (LAWDI) from May 30st to June 1st, 2013. The venue for the 2013 session will be the Drew University campus in New Jersey.

Linked Open Data” is an approach to the creation of digital resources that emphasizes connections between diverse information on the basis of published and stable web addresses (URIs) that identify common concepts and individual items. LAWDI, funded by the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment for Humanities, brought together an international faculty of practitioners working in the field of Linked Data with twenty attendees who are implementing or planning the creation of digital resources.

LAWDI’s intellectual scope is the Ancient Mediterranean and Ancient Near East, two fields in which a large and increasing number of digital resources is available, with rich coverage of the archaeology, literature and history of these regions. Many of these resources publish stable URIs for their content and so are enabling links and re-use that create a varied research and publication environment. LAWDI attendees will learn how to take advantage of these resources and also how to contribute to the growing network of linked scholarly materials.

The organizers encourage interest from faculty, university staff, graduate students, librarians, museum professionals, archivists and others with a serious interest in creating digital resources for the study of the Ancient World. Applications to the 2013 sessions should take the form of an attached (MS-Word, PDF or other common format) one-page statement of interest. They should include a discussion of current or planned work undertaken by the applicant. As part of the curriculum, successful applicants will be asked to present their ongoing or planned work.

A report on the first LAWDI session has appeared in Information Standards Quarterly: http://dx.doi.org/10.3789/isqv24n2-3.2012.08 .
