6:30 pm – 9:20 pm
This course examines the emerging field of linked open data and its application in the world of digital and/or physical libraries and museums. The overall objective for the classroom as a whole is to ideate and then create a linked open data project. This will require not only reading and research on existing projects and standards but also the acquisition of software and programming skills needed to make the project work. Students will be required to learn a computer programming language (Python), this course will not serve as a general introduction to programming or computer science, but using it in the context of the class will serve as an excellent starting point for further study.
