Semantic Lab at Pratt: Linked Data for Archival Exploration – A Use Case from the Rauschenberg Archives Part 1: Construction: Methods and Tools
The Semantic Lab has developed several innovative tools to facilitate digital arts and humanities research using linked open data principles and technologies. We will provide an overview of these tools and their applications by featuring use cases from the E.A.T.+LOD Project which focuses on archival documents from the Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) collection of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.
This project aims to transform the E.A.T. Bibliography into linked data to become part of the broader E.A.T. + LOD dataset. The E.A.T. Bibliography, created by Billy Klüver, consists of a list of over 600 references centered on the E.A.T. initiative. The goal of the project is to enhance the E.A.T + LOD project with bibliographic data to provide unified access and discovery to E.A.T. research, collection, and related reference data.
