I just remembered to put up my slides onto slideshare from a talk I gave to a group of students about the work that we’ve been doing around linked data, particularly in relation to the STELLAR project.   STELLAR was a Jisc-funded project that finished in July.  It investigated the value of a digital library collection of old course material, carried out an enhancement using linked data technology and then evaluated the impact on perceptions of value.

The slides talk through why semantic web technologies might be important to libraries, cover a very basic outline of linked data and then concentrate on discussing what we did in STELLAR, what we found and how we’ve embedded that technology into our new digital archive.

The slides are on slideshare at http://www.slideshare.net/RichardNurse/semantic-web-technologies-and-digital-library-search and embedded below
