Full Description

Join us for a morning of CollectiveAccess presentations, discussions, and socializing. We’ll spend some time learning about how CollectiveAccess supports linked open data (LOD) and what the future of CAUG could look like.

Agenda:

  • From the Durst Organization, Ryan Donaldson, Quinn Therriault, and Caridad Bojorquez will demo how CollectiveAccess is used for the Durst Heritage and Information Services Dept.

  • From Whirl-i-Gig, Julia Weist and Seth Kaufman will show us how CollectiveAccess now supports Getty linked open data — Union List of Artist Names (ULAN), Art & Architecture Thesaurus (AAT), and the Thesaurus of Geographic Names (TGN) — as live hook-ups, plus a new tool for entity creation.

  • Open discussion about what else we want to see in future CAUG meetings. What would you like to have a workshop on? What kinds of topics related to digital collections are you interested in? What’s most useful in a user group? We’ll talk through these and more.

We hope to see you there!
