  • Dracula as test search
  • Working Forest as example
  • Instead of searching for “Jane Austen”, a user could search for women authors from England who wrote in the 1800s.
  • Richer authority records include things like gender, associated dates, associated place, and field of activity. Instead of searching for “Jane Austen”, a user could search for women authors from England who wrote in the 1800s.
  • Partnership between the Archives of Michigan, the Internet Archive, Freebase, Digital Scholarship Lab at the University of Richmond, and LookBackMaps.Does anyone know of any other examples, either of data that is out there, or particular projects?

It builds upon standard web technologies, such as HTTP and URIs - but rather than using them to serve web pages for human readers, it extends them to share information in a way that can be read automatically by computers.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linked_Data
